Di Sheyne Milnerin – Mark Glanville, Alexander Knapp

Following the success of 'A Yiddish Winterreise', the first time a collection of Yiddish song had been forged into a cycle with a coherent, narrative trajectory, Glanville and Knapp now turn their attention to Schubert's other great cycle, a tale of unrequited love. Instead of performing this wonderful music in the familiar, Jewish folk-style, Glanville, a former opera singer, prefers a classical approach and in doing so shows that the secular, Yiddish cultural tradition which was almost destroyed during the Holocaust is still vibrant and alive. Performed with piano accompaniments, half in original arrangements by the composer and pianist Alexander Knapp, an internationally recognised authority on Jewish music, these profoundly beautiful songs should be of interest to all lovers of Lieder and art song.



"... He [Glanville] sings strongly here - a lovely voice, deeply concerned with the text..."

Charles H Parsons - American Record Guide - May/June 2013


"This is all as heart-rending as the Schubert cycle and the music, though completely new to me, conveys the feelings just as graphically as Schubert’s does. Mark Glanville’s somewhat gritty bass-baritone is powerful and expressive and his straightforward approach is well attuned to the contents of the cycle. He is excellently supported by Alexander Knapp, whose playing is flexible and sensitive. I only wish the recording balance had been more generous to the singer. As it is, one gets the feeling that the piano is at the front of the stage while Mark Glanville is standing behind it. This is a fascinating issue and I urge readers to give it a try. It is music off the beaten track, but that’s where one often makes the real discoveries." 
 
Göran Forsling - Musicweb-International.com - November 2012

 ‘Di Sheyne Milnerin’ is a follow up to the same artist’s ‘A Yiddish Winterreise’. "...Alexander Knapp and Mark Glanville have taken the essential story of Schubert’s Die schöne Müllerin, namely that of unrequited love for a miller girl, but use traditional Yiddish folk songs and texts in highly effective arrangements, largely by Knapp (only ‘Am Feierabend’, translated as ‘Nokh der arbet’ (After work’), remains from the original Schubert cycle).The aim of Glanville and Knapp is to present this comparatively unknown but highly attractive music in the style of the classical Lieder tradition. That their concept works so well is partly a tribute to the artists themselves, but also perhaps due to the ‘rich symbiosis that once existed between the German and Jewish cultures’, as they explain in the excellent essay contained in the booklet. There is a very appealing feeling of whimsy in the hero of the story, with the spirit of Don Quixote very much in evidence, giving each of the varied songs – which range from tragic emotion to humour – a certain colourful intensity and a thought-provoking ambiguity. The wealth of attractive melody found in these songs is very seductive indeed, with Glanville’s flamboyant approach to this repertoire, not always immaculate in execution but unfailingly characterful and full of personality, giving point to the words. In sum, anyone who enjoys the Lieder repertoire will relish this quirky and original twist on that art form."
