Subject: RE: Anyone Know Yiddish???-Songs by Ludwig Satz
I will be at that (for the 6th time, I think) - but we tend to stick to material that uses mainstream Eastern-European Jewish melodies, the older and folkier the better, and it looks like Satz was in a different game.
Ian Stern at Kleznorth might know something, though. And there is a historian of the London Yiddish theatre who seems to know EVERYTHING about Yiddish popular culture - can't remember his name, Machover maybe? I went to a talk by him and it was like being hit over the head with an encyclopaedia.
How did you get interested in these recordings?
