Jüdische Wiegenlied - (2015)   

for piano


 

Number Eight in a set of  what was called then "newly published" Yiddish Melodies by the Schriften des Institutim Judaicum in Berlin (published more than a century ago) is a cradle song. The song text begins "Schlof sche, mein Vögele, mach zu dein Ögele, schlof, mein Kind, schlof." The gentle melody is treated to a number of complimentary variations for piano.
