Tur Malka – New Songs of Yiddish Montreal
Celebrating his new recording, Henrí Oppenheim presents Tur Malka (Royal Mountain), a musical setting of works by leading figures of Canadian Yiddish literature: Jacob Isaac Segal, Chava Rosenfarb, Rokhl Korn, Melekh Ravitch, Ida Maze, A.M. Klein, and N.I. Gotlib. The album aims to revive an important period of Yiddish culture in Canada. Oppenheim’s poignant melodic tunes reveal a range of styles from folk ballads to electro-infused popular songs.
