The Yiddish singer Myriam Fuks is a unique voice on the Brussels music scene, an authentic interpreter of a vanishing legacy in a voice that begins at her boots and gets lower.
Myriam has made recordings before, mostly on the Avanticlassic label, with her former protégé, the violinist Roby Lakatos.
But for this landmark album she has assembled a dazzling array of classical headliners – Kissin, Maisky, Margulis and more.
And on the final track: Martha Argerich. As you’ve never heard her before. Martha, in a Yiddish song.
