By juxtaposing Leonid Desyatnikov's contemporary song settings of Yiddish texts (offering a glimpse into Jewish life in Warsaw during the Weimar Republic) with a pair of chamber works by Schulhoff and Korngold, which also date from this troubled period between the wars, the present recording highlights the fascinating cross-pollination then taking place in the music of Eastern and Western Europe.

With soprano Hila Baggio as their featured soloist, members of the Jerusalem Quartet bid us 'come to the cabaret' to savour a whole range of stylistic approaches and emotional experiences of the rarest kind.
