Description: The only orchestral piece here, the 1949 Op. 48 (27 minutes and in stereo from two live concert recordings), is a emotional response to the Holocaust which includes shrill march rhythms, somber brass motifs, a Slavic-tinged hymn and a movement to a final apotheosis. The majority of his solo songs have Biblical sources and tend to the dramatic and declamatory but his ability to encompass a wider variety of emotional responses is evident in the 56 minutes of secular songs which make up most of the second disc. 2 CDs. No texts. Lone Koppel (soprano except where noted above), Herman D. Koppel (piano except where noted above).
