About this Item

Folio. 6pp. Original wrappers splendidly illustrated by Russian Avant Garde artist El Lissitzky, who helped develop suprematism with his mentor, Kazimir Malevich, and designed numerous exhibition displays and propaganda works for the Soviet Union. His work greatly influenced the Bauhaus and constructivist movements, and he experimented with production techniques and stylistic devices that would go on to dominate 20th-century graphic design. Complete musical score of "I Jaillit Une Larme" ("Noteif Notfoh"), a music composed and arranged for voice and piano by Russian Jewish composer Aleksandr Abramovich Kre n* (1883-1951). Sporadic and minor foxing, creasing and tiny closed tears along edges of wrappers. Previous owner's stamp (Cantor T. Vainstein) at upper margin of front cover. Upper margin of page 2, partly taped. Minor and sporadic foxing throughout. Text in Yiddish, Russian, French, and transliterated Yiddish. Wrappers and interior in overall good+ condition. * Krein's pioneering spirit had led him to incorporate the intonations and styles of both sacred and secular Jewish music into a relatively advanced idiom that was as influended by French impressionism as it was by the music of his friend Alexander Scriabin. Krein's own Jewish heritage was a constant source of inspiration; there are a number of instrumental works whose titles bear quite obvious witness to this, such as the "Caprice Hebraique," Op. 24, and the "Jewish Sketches" for clarinet and string quartet. In 1921, he composed "Kaddish" for tenor soloist, choir, and orchestra. From the mid-'20s on, he also wrote music for plays given by Moscow's Jewish Drama Theater. There is also a large amount of music that is either purely classical in design or Soviet in nature. In the latter category are works like the revolutionary opera Zagmuk (1930), the Threnody in Memory of Lenin (1925), and the somewhat amusingly titled U.S.S.R., Shock Brigade of the World Proletariat (1925).
