A new work by cult pianist and composer Evgeny Kissin! These nine Yiddish poems were penned by his friend, the author and lyricist Boris Sandler (*1950). Kissin follows in his very folksong-like settings, which are easy for amateur music-lovers to sing and play, the prevailing mood of each poem, the titles of which - such as “Sternlein mit Mandeln” (Little stars with almonds), “Wenn der Kopf kein Topf ist” (When the head isn’t a pot), “Moschl-Kaposchl”, “Was weiss ich” (What do I know) - promise a subtle, cryptic and also entirely profound humour.

This Henle edition presents the Yiddish song texts not only in Hebrew letters, but also transliterated into Latin characters, with an appendix additionally offering German and English prose translations of the poems.
