Although everything here except the 1955 "Oberek" comes from 1979 or later, these works are almost entirely based on dance, folk or popular sources ("Espressioni", of 1990, is the most "advanced" of the pieces but it is still resolutely tonal) and the three largest-scale pieces, the 1979 "Gershwin tribute", the "Spanish Fantasia" of 1985 and "Niggunim" (1991) are thoroughly enjoyable in their evocations of American jazz and blues, Iberian colors and, in the most authentic work here, musicologically speaking, melodies of the almost extinct Polish Hassidic culture.
