On "Ijikos presyados" - (2018)   

for piano


A Ladino text and tune inspires this little invention.  The text in Ladino:   "Ijikos presyados, / Andavos a la skola / K'ayi ambezaresh i tomaresh sensya. / Andavos a la skola / Kon el livro i la pendola / K'ayi ambezaresh i tomaresh sensya."  This good advice in English reads:   "Precious children, go to school to learn and receive knowledge. Go to school with book and pen to learn and receive knowledge."
