Featuring Osvaldo Golijov's Yiddishbbuk, Haydn's Quartet in D Major, Opus 20, No. 4, Dvorak's Quartet in

A flat Major, Opus 105.

Osvaldo Golijov's Yiddishbbuk was composed in 1992 and was inspired, in part, by the poems and drawings of children interned in the Terezin ghetto. The title refers to the cabalistic text of a collection of apocryphal psalms that perished in the Holocaust. Based on the few remaining vestiges of a collection of ancient apocryphal psalms, Yiddishbbuk is the recreation of music that begins, in the words of Franz Kafka, with "a broken song played on a shattered cymbalon.
