Achron - Hebrew Lullaby (Op. 35 No. 2)

Sheet music for violin

Alt. Title: Hebräishes Wiegenlied
Info: Hebrew Lullaby is the second of two works composed at the same time in 1912. It was a period in which Achron sought to create a new kind of Jewish style which while drawing on folk melody assimulated traditional elements within a sophisticated overall synthesis. The lullaby is a meditative nocturne based on a rising three note motif from a folk song.

The artist: Russian composer and violinist of Jewish origin, who settled in the United States.
