This highly acclaimed sequence of songs from the Yiddish repertoire recreates the original, Schubertian journey in a Holocaust context. The singer reflects on the life and world he has just seen destroyed as he flees the Vilna ghetto. "Half of them are arranged by the superb pianist Alexander Knapp, an expert on Jewish music... Glanville was masterly in sustaining its technical and emotional demands" - Opera Now

Mark Glanville - bass-baritone
Alexander Knapp - piano

A live performance of 'Vilne' from 'A Yiddish Winterreise'
