'Shaham and Erez deliver outstandingly committed performances, revelling in the music's virtuosity, fantasy and heightened intensity of expression' (BBC Music Magazine)
Scher, Op 42 (which also exists in a later version for clarinet and orchestra) is based on a folk dance from the Kiselgof collection, its klezmer-style melody is repeated several times by the violin over increasingly complex chromatic piano textures before a fiery coda.

Scher, op. 42 (dont il existe aussi une version postérieure pour clarinette et orchestre) est basée sur une danse folklorique du recueil de Kiselgof, sa mélodie de style klezmer est reprise plusieurs fois par le violon sur des textures chromatiques de plus en plus complexes au piano, avant une coda enflammée.

Scher op. 42 (das ebenso in einer späteren Version für Klarinette und Orchester existiert) basiert auf einem Volkstanz aus der Kiselgof-Sammlung und seine klezmerartige Melodie wird mehrmals von der Geige über zunehmend komplexen chromatischen Klaviertexturen wiederholt, bevor eine feurige Coda das Stück beendet.
