Description
David Schiff's 1979 Yiddish opera Gimpel the Fool is based on a story by Isaac Bashevis Singer, who also wrote the libretto. Elie Siegmeister wrote two operas, based on stories by Bernard Malamud: Angel Levine and this disc's Lady of the Lake (1985). The last and greatest of Hugo Weisgall's 10 operas, Esther (1993) was based on the biblical book of the same name, with Juliana Gondek singing powerfully in these excerpts.

"Playing and singing is good and there are uncommonly rich and informative liner-notes on both the composers and the operas. This series with music from the Milken Archive is a goldmine for everyone interested in Jewish music, and opera enthusiasts who want to widen their knowledge should give this disc a try."Musicweb International
