Du Shtetl à New York

"To me, she is beautiful. Beautiful when she sings, beautiful when she dances.
Beautiful when she brings together the different emblems of the arts, threading her way from French 
to English to Yiddish, and traveling from the shtetl to the lights of Broadway.
I first met Isabelle Georges and her friends from the Sirba Octet, Richard Schmoucler and Cyrille Lehn, 
at the 60th anniversary celebration of the Normandy landings. Our goal was to celebrate the event in Paris, at the Théâtre Marigny, with musicians who wanted to express their gratitude to the Allies for having liberated Europe from Nazi domination. On that day in June, 2004, Isabelle Georges and the Sirba Octet met with resounding success. The audience was enthralled with their version of ‘Bei mir bist du scheyn’, which the Andrew Sisters,
Judy Garland, Léo Marjane and Ella Fitzgerald had sung in years past.
Although miracles are only supposed to happen once, this one just keeps happening, thanks to Isabelle the enchantress and the musical magicians of the Sirba Octet. 
From one performance to another, from one festival to the next, the group has become closer and closer. The result is this thrilling album, which invites the listener to journey from Yiddish theatre to the Broadway musical.
From the shtetl to New York."
