The Well [Explicit Lyrics]

( 2 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
When Israeli singer Chava Alberstein produced a documentary film on 20th-century Yiddish poets in 1995 Too Early to Be Quiet, Too Late to Sing, the writers' stories provoked Alberstein to set some of their poems to music. The results are gathered on The Well, with vocals by Alberstein and music performed by the Klezmatics. The compositions reflect Alberstein's wide range of influences, from klezmer and traditional Jewish music to French chanson, German cabaret, American folk, and Middle Eastern styles all popping up.

    How could you miss?

    Great poetry, Alberstein's voice, and the Klezmatic's music-- how could you miss? The songs are lyrical and fascinating. Even with no knowledge of Yiddish, the listener will appreciate the poetry. And those who do read the translations in the liner notes will be doubly rewarded. One warning: Anybody who reads 'My Sister Khaye' while listening to Alberstein sing had better be holding a big hanky. It will tear your heart out.
