    Requiem Ebraico (92nd Psalm) ~ Eric Zeisl

    Nick Strimple, conductor
    Iain Farrington, organ
    Soprano: Diana Newman
    Alto: Callista Hoffman-Campbell
    Baritone: Timothy Campbell
    Los Angeles Zimriyah Chorale
    Sinai Temple, Los Angeles

    At the end of October 1944, Fairfax Temple's Rabbi Jacob Sonderling approached Zeisl suggesting several liturgical texts for a new work. Zeisl chose to compose the 92nd Psalm, which is traditionally recited on the Sabbath. He found the text celebrating the ultimate triumph of good over evil to be particularly appropriate to his mood, as the war in Europe came to a close, and the hopes of ever seeing again the parents he had left behind waned. Zeisl called his work Requiem Ebraico (A Hebrew Requiem), alluding to the traditional Catholic text for mourning that had inspired so many great composers before him (Mozart, Cherubini, Berlioz, Verdi and Dvorak) and perhaps following the lead of Johannes Brahms, who used different Lutheran texts in his German Requiem.
    The Requiem Ebraico was premiered on April 8, 1945 in a concert of the Hollywood Inter-Faith Forum before an audience of more than 2,000 people, making it the first serious musical work written in response to the Holocaust. On November 16, 1945 Zeisl wrote to his publisher, who was reluctant to publish the work because of its implied subject-matter: I wrote this piece dedicated to the memory of my loving father and the other countless victims of the Jewish tragedy in Europe. . . . [W]ith a heart full of tears [Jews] hold on to God and do not cease to thank Him and do not cease to hope. This is the message and the consolation which I found in the 92nd Psalm. . . I conceived the work as a requiem and it was generally accepted and liked that way. The Jews need a requiem, so let's try to give it to them. . . I wrote it from my heart and therefore it will find its way to their hearts.

    Two years later, a reviewer in Toronto called the work one of the most gripping pieces of elegiac composition in the history of music.


    Eric Zeisl (1905-1959) was born in Vienna, Austria. From early childhood he demonstrated an unshakable resolve to compose music, and entered the Vienna State Music Academy at age 14. His first songs were published just two years later. After struggling to make his name while the Nazi tide was rising, Zeisl fled from Austria on November 10, 1938, the day after Kristallnacht, when synagogues throughout Germany and Austria were burned. After a brief stay in Paris, he managed to reach New York and settled in Hollywood, California in 1942.

    Zeisl wrote music used in numerous films, including Lassie Come Home and The Invisible Man's Revenge, but eventually returned to serious composition. Many of his works composed after leaving Austria include Jewish themes, including his unfinished opera, Job, and his ballets, Jacob and Rachel and Naboth's Vineyard. Zeisl taught at Los Angeles City College and during the summers at the Brandeis-Bardin Institute until his untimely death at age 53 in 1959.

    In the past twenty years Zeisl's works have been rediscovered and are featured on numerous recordings. In October 2013, Yarlung Records will release a recording of Zeisl's Little Symphony, November, and Concerto Grosso for Cello and Orchestra featuring conductor Neal Stulberg and the UCLA Philharmonic Orchestra. Zeisl's Requiem Ebraico, a setting of the 92nd psalm in memory of the victims of the Holocaust, has been performed in recent years by the Israel Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta, the Cincinnati May Festival by James Conlon and the Vienna Philharmonic under Tugan Sokhiev.

    'Tis good to give thanks unto the Lord
    And sing praise to Thy name, Lord most high.
    To show forth Thy love in the morning
    And Thy mercy and truth in the night, ev'ry night.

    I play with the strings of the psaltry;
    With solemn sound on the harp.

    For Thou, O Lord, hast made me glad through Thy work
    I will exult in the works of Thy hands,
    and I shall flourish.

    O how great are Thy works, my God.
    So profound are Thy thoughts.
    A brutish man knows not,
    Neither doth a fool understand.
    Though ever the wicked spring up like the grass
    And should all the workers of iniquity flourish,
    They shall be destroyed forever.

    But Thou, O Lord, art on high forever more.

    Lo, Thine enemies, O Lord, my God,
    They shall be cast out and shall perish,
    They shall be cast out and perish.
    But Thou will exalt my horn
    I shall be anointed with oil, with fresh oil;
    For mine eyes have seen my desire
    On mine enemies and mine ears
    Have heard of the wicked
    who rise up against me.


    Like a palm tree the righteous shall bloom
    And grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
    They are planted in the house of God.
    They shall flourish in the courts of our Lord.
    They shall bring forth fruit in old age
    And be full of richness and sap.

    There is no unrighteousness in Him;
    He is my rock.
    To show that the Lord is upright

  • Songs for the Daughter of Jephtha by Eric Zeisl

    20:59

    Songs for the Daughter of Jephtha (Four Songs for Wordless Chorus) ~ Eric Zeisl (1948)

    Nick Strimple, conductor
    Los Angeles Zimriyah Chorale
    August 22, 2013 Los Angeles

    In 1948, Zeisl accepted an invitation to serve as composer-in-residence at the Brandeis Camp Institute in Simi Valley. His main composition of that year was a setting of four wordless choruses, entitled Songs for the Daughter of Jephtha, after the girl whose father sacrificed her as a burnt offering after he defeated the Ammonites. The girl was given two months to bewail her fate before her father fulfilled his terrible vow and carried out his sacrifice. Zeisl explained the work as follows:
    The cantata describes the difficult moods of the maiden in the mountains. 'Lament' opens the tragedy. 'Dance' brings a feeling of exhilaration, happy and sad simultaneously. 'Evening Song' is a tender pastoral, like a farewell to life. 'Halleluja,' after a tragic introduction, leads to an agitated fugue which ends with a passionate expression of faith.

    Eric Zeisl (1905-1959) was born in Vienna, Austria. From early childhood he demonstrated an unshakable resolve to compose music, and entered the Vienna State Music Academy at age 14. His first songs were published just two years later. After struggling to make his name while the Nazi tide was rising, Zeisl fled from Austria on November 10, 1938, the day after Kristallnacht, when synagogues throughout Germany and Austria were burned.

Une musique pleine d'effets dramatiques et de mise en scène cinématographique, incorporant aussi les apports du jazz. Contraint durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale de s'exiler, Erich Zeisl s'installa en Californie où il travailla pour Hollywood sans que cette industrie lui permette de se réaliser pleinement. Zeisl enseigna la composition au Los Angeles City College et eut parmi ses élèves Jerry Goldsmith.

    Cantata of Verses by Eric Zeisl

    Nick Strimple, conductor
    Iain Farrington, organ
    Los Angeles Zimriyah Chorale
    Sinai Temple, Los Angeles
    April 7, 2011


    In 1935, Zeisl composed his Cantata of Verses, a choral setting of biblical verses and writings by Silesius and Goethe. Zeisl chose to set a verse from Genesis 3:19 In the sweating of the brow, shalt thou earn thy bread. The Cantata was premiered in the Vienna Konzerthaus in 1936. Reviewers noted Zeisl's great artistic ability, justifying even greater expectations [for the future]. Sadly, Hitler's annexation of Austria just two years later prematurely ended Zeisl's steady ascent as an Austrian composer. Zeisl's colorful and rhythmic orchestration and choral writing in the Genesis movement sound today reminiscent of Carl Orff's popular Carmina Burana, which was in fact completed one year after Zeisl's own work.

    In the passacaglia movement of the Cantata of Verses, Zeisl set the famous lines from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 To every thing there is a season. The movement begins with a statement of the theme, which then goes through eleven separate variations as Zeisl paints dramatic musical portraits of the various life events and moods described in the text. Zeisl's ability to invent evocative, stylistic variations served him well after his arrival in Los Angeles, when he was employed to write mood pieces for the Hollywood studios.

    Eric Zeisl (1905-1959) was born in Vienna, Austria. From early childhood he demonstrated an unshakable resolve to compose music, and entered the Vienna State Music Academy at age 14. His first songs were published just two years later. After struggling to make his name while the Nazi tide was rising, Zeisl fled from Austria on November 10, 1938, the day after Kristallnacht, when synagogues throughout Germany and Austria were burned. After a brief stay in Paris, he managed to reach New York and settled in Hollywood, California in 1942.

    Zeisl wrote music used in numerous films, including Lassie Come Home and The Invisible Man's Revenge, but eventually returned to serious composition. Many of his works composed after leaving Austria include Jewish themes, including his unfinished opera, Job, and his ballets, Jacob and Rachel and Naboth's Vineyard. Zeisl taught at Los Angeles City College and during the summers at the Brandeis-Bardin Institute until his untimely death at age 53 in 1959.

    In the past twenty years Zeisl's works have been rediscovered and are featured on numerous recordings. In October 2013, Yarlung Records will release a recording of Zeisl's Little Symphony, November, and Concerto Grosso for Cello and Orchestra featuring conductor Neal Stulberg and the UCLA Philharmonic Orchestra. Zeisl's Requiem Ebraico, a setting of the 92nd psalm in memory of the victims of the Holocaust, has been performed in recent years by the Israel Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta, the Cincinnati May Festival by James Conlon and the Vienna Philharmonic under Tugan Sokhiev.

    from Albany TROY1756



    Eric Zeisl fled Austria in 1938, coming to the United States, and committing himself to applying his mastery of classical compositional technique to commemorating the destroyed Jewish European heritage. He met Benjamin Zemach at the then new Brandeis-Bardin Institute, where Zemach headed the dance and theater department. The two men set out to create two biblical ballets, one of which, Jacob and Rachel, is performed on this recording. Zemach expertly distilled the dramatic elements of the old stories into scenes, and Zeisl composed the music—his forte was exactly that, depicting characters, actions and emotions in music. The second work on this recording, Variations on a Slovakian Folk Song, derives its theme from a book of folksongs called Slowakisch. The translation of the text is: Lord God mine, Father mine, give the world your light and justice. Every day your poor servant suffers terribly. The mission of the Los Angeles Jewish Symphony is to perform orchestral works of well-known as well as not widely recognized Jewish composers. The LAJS is the only orchestra in America dedicated to the performance and preservation of orchestral works of distinction that explore Jewish culture, heritage, and experience. Led by artistic director Noreen Green, who founded the orchestra in 1994, the LAJS celebrates the richness of Jewish music, sharing it with diverse audiences. Dr. Green is known worldwide for her knowledge and skill in presenting music with Jewish themes. She has served as guest conductor in the United States, Israel, South Africa, Australia, and Canada. In 2017, Musical America recognized her as one of its Movers & Shapers the Top 30 Musical America Professionals of the Year.

    On collectionCB3 we can also listen to Erich Zeisl's « Variations on a Slovakian Folksong » for string orchestra (1937) and « Andante and Scherzo » (1953 and 1937).

    La suite de Ballet « Pierrot in der Flasche/Pierrot dans la Bouteille » (1929) de l'Autrichien Erich Zeisl offre un panorama étourdissant des nouveautés stylistiques de la première école de Vienne qui avait propulsé Richard Strauss et le jeune Erich Wolfgang Korngold. Une musique pleine d'effets dramatiques et de mise en scène cinématographique, incorporant aussi les apports du jazz. Contraint durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale de s'exiler, Erich Zeisl s'installa en Californie où il travailla pour Hollywood sans que cette industrie lui permette de se réaliser pleinement. Zeisl enseigna la composition au Los Angeles City College et eut parmi ses élèves Jerry Goldsmith.

    Die Nacht bricht an, (Musik: Erich Zeisl) sung by: Daniel Serafin - 2013

    Ein Wolkengebirg' umfließt
    Die Sonne, die herabgesunken.
    Der Tag, noch müd von allen Kämpfen, schließt.
    Einsam am Ufer treibt ein Kahn
    Und alles, alles ist getan.

    Und alles ruhen will,
    So todesmüd, so traurig still.
    Ein spätes Lied, die Nacht bricht an,
    Und alles, alles ist getan.

    Psalm 29, Herrlichkeit Gottes im Gewitter ~ Eric Zeisl

    Sinai Temple, Los Angeles
    April 7, 2011

    Zeisl's setting of Psalm 29 (God's Glory in a Thunderstorm) from 1936
    stands as his first through-composed sacred composition based on a
    psalm text and incorporating a climactic closing fugue. Years later,
    Zeisl would return to this formula for his Requiem Ebraico, a setting
    of the 92nd psalm. Structurally, Zeisl achieved an organic growth and
    flow by refining his transitional technique, while stylistically he
    exploited a wealth of choral and orchestral sonorities to depict general
    moods and specific textual details. There is no evidence of any
    performance of the work, so this concert presumably marks the world
    premiere. The parts and organ reduction for this performance were
    completed by Gabor Lukin with editing by Prof. Malcolm Cole.

    Eric Zeisl (1905-1959) was born in Vienna, Austria. From early childhood he demonstrated an unshakable resolve to compose music, and entered the Vienna State Music Academy at age 14. His first songs were published just two years later. After struggling to make his name while the Nazi tide was rising, Zeisl fled from Austria on November 10, 1938, the day after Kristallnacht, when synagogues throughout Germany and Austria were burned. After a brief stay in Paris, he managed to reach New York and settled in Hollywood, California in 1942.

    Zeisl wrote music used in numerous films, including Lassie Come Home and The Invisible Man's Revenge, but eventually returned to serious composition. Many of his works composed after leaving Austria include Jewish themes, including his unfinished opera, Job, and his ballets, Jacob and Rachel and Naboth's Vineyard. Zeisl taught at Los Angeles City College and during the summers at the Brandeis-Bardin Institute until his untimely death at age 53 in 1959.

    In the past twenty years Zeisl's works have been rediscovered and are featured on numerous recordings. In October 2013, Yarlung Records will release a recording of Zeisl's Little Symphony, November, and Concerto Grosso for Cello and Orchestra featuring conductor Neal Stulberg and the UCLA Philharmonic Orchestra. Zeisl's Requiem Ebraico, a setting of the 92nd psalm in memory of the victims of the Holocaust, has been performed in recent years by the Israel Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta, the Cincinnati May Festival by James Conlon and the Vienna Philharmonic under Tugan Sokhiev.
