Elizabeth Schwartz has been called “The Edith Piaf of Yiddish” and “a revelation” with a superb mastery of klezmer ornamentations. For centuries, klezmer music was dominated by instrumentalists who strove to imitate the human voice, the sole purveyor of the liturgy on which klezmer was based. Schwartz has reclaimed the vocal origins of this genre. Her timbre, phrasing and intonation is impeccable.
