In 1908 the Society for Jewish Folk Music was founded in St. Petersburg. It soon began to publish sheet music (including Kisselgoff’s collection of some 80 Jewish folk songs) and also organized concerts of Jewish music. The activities of the Society in St. Petersburg ceased in 1919, but other branches continued their musical activities for several more years. This CD features works by outstanding figures in the Society - Joel Engel, Solomon Rosowsky, Joseph Achron, Alexander Veprik, Mikhail Gnessin, Alexander Krein and Leo Zeitlin - several of which are based on folk songs from Kisselgoff’s collection.
