Ballads

Description

"A typical ballad is a plot-driven song, with one or more characters hurriedly unfurling events leading to a dramatic conclusion. At best, a ballad does not tell the reader what’s happening, but rather shows the reader what’s happening, describing each crucial moment in the trail of events." (from Poets.org)

Informant, in English, states that the Yiddish song must be 130 years old. He heard it from his mother almost 60 years ago. He doesn’t know where she heard it. It is one of the lullabies she sang to him. In the year ‘76 this story happened... a tavern that didn’t do well...the father disappears... one of the five children unlocks the attic - and sees that the father has hung himself. Song is cut off.

Description

Ravitch states he heard this song in 1911 by the outstanding poet Dovid Kenigsberg, born in 1892 [YIVO encylcopedia: 1891] in the shtetl Shvisz (sp.?) [YIVO Encylcopedia: Busk, in the Tarnopol district of eastern Galicia] who was not very popular. He was killed in 1942 in Lemberg. He wrote sonnets of high quality at first. Nevertheless, he had a talent for folk songs and folk feeling. Ravitch states that he is not a singer, and that this is the only folksong he knows - he sang it so many times he can’t forget it. Song is in 3/4 meter.

Description

[Note on tape log inside box:] This bit of tape was sent to me by A. J. Lloyd, musicologist, from London, England, in July, 2964. His description of it is as follows: “I’m sending you a tiny present. It’s a tape copy of a recording sent to me by a musicologist friend in Rumania. But ITS NOT OF RUMANIAN music. Its an UKRAINIAN JEWISH WEDDING SCENE, recorde by a Jewish Ensemble in the early 30s...Its particulars are: Bazetsn di kale: Jewish Folk Music Ensemble, dir. M Rabinowitch, APRELEVSKI ZAVOD...The finddle music resembles the Rumanian doinas in which bartok was interested. Acoustically its nothing great...plenty of surface hiss, etc., but musically and folkloristically, it seems to me fascinating.” [Problem with volume and with sound quality.] Lazar Kalmanovich, Nekhama Vinyar acc. Ukrainian SSR State Ensemble of Jewish Folk Music conducted by Mark Rabinovitch (Aprelevski 5190/1) 41897 Ruth Rubin master tape was digitized.
