Canzonetta, Op 52 No 2
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Political and economic conditions forced the closure of the St Petersburg branch of the Society for Jewish Folk Music in 1922, though it survived until 1929 in Russia as a whole. The final St Petersburg concert featured Achron’s Lieder, Op 52, the second of which, a setting of the Hebrew poet Avraham Ben-Yitzhak, was later arranged for violin as the buoyantly lyrical Canzonetta, published in 1923 by Jibneh, the Jewish music publishing house in Berlin which Achron took over with Mikhail Gnesin.
