Caprice Records presenterar en återutgivning av något alldeles särskilt unikt: den enda inspelningen som någonsin gjorts av Moses Pergaments Den Judiska Sången. Inspelningen gjordes 1974 i anslutning till en konsertuppsättning i konserthuset, och är helt unik i sitt slag. Inte heller har musiken framförts i sin helhet sedan dess.

Finlandsvenske kompositören Moses Pergament (1893-1977) är kanske en av svensk musikhistorias mest väl förborgade hemligheter. Till skillnad från t.ex. Lars-Erik Larsson och Wilhelm Stenhammar så är Moses Pergament i stort sett ett bortglömt namn idag, men under sin tid var han ansedd som en av de stora profilerna inom svensk konstmusik. Han var allra mest känd för allmänheten som musikkritiker och skribent, som med sitt informativa och beskrivande sätt var en viktig röst för förståelsen och acceptansen av de nya radikala strömningarna inom musiken. I en tid då svenska konstmusiklivet fortfarande präglades oerhört av senromantiska ideal hade Pergament ett brinnande intresse för ny musik. Då musiken varit mycket svår att finna är denna återutgivning mycket efterfrågad.


***

Caprice Records proudly presents the reissuing of something notably unique: the only recording that has ever been made of Moses Pergament's The Jewish Song. The tragic oblivion surrounding this creation is perhaps typical of Swedish musical life's relationship to its grand masterpieces. The recording was made in 1974 in conjunction with a concert performance at the Stockholm Concert Hall, and is completely unique. Neither has the music been performed as a whole since this event, which seems incomprehensive when listening to it.

Finnish-Swedish composer Moses Pergament (1893-1977) is perhaps one of Swedish music history's most well-kept secrets. In contrast to e.g. Lars-Erik Larsson and Wilhelm Stenhammar the name Moses Pergament is one largely forgotten today, but during his time he was regarded as one of the major figures in Swedish art music. For the public, he was most famous as a music critic and annalist, whose educational and descriptive style made him an important voice for the understanding and acceptance of the radical new musical trends, and the unprecedented development that followed. In a time when the Swedish art music business was still highly pervaded by the late Romantic ideals, Pergament harbored a keen interest in new music, and was for example one of quite few in art music to gladly welcome the oncoming of jazz in Sweden in the 1930's. This continued even in old age, for when the experimental electronic music made entrance in the 1960's he claimed that while he could not grasp it musically, it was certainly in "absolute unison" with the rampant technological development of the time - and that was nothing new as far as music is concerned.

Pergament's own sound world was based on growing up in an Orthodox Jewish home in Helsinki, and the historical, religious musical culture that he had access to. As he himself put it, it gave him the "intuitive basis for my music". He studied the early ancient notation, (e.g. neumes, still used in Jewish worship services to sing by) and learned the history of Jewish musical culture, from the Old Testament stories of Moses' song of praise to Israel and "the music's ancestor" Jobal, to today's sacred and popular Jewish music.

The tremendous work The Jewish Song was composed during a three week period in 1944, at a time when the extent of the German Nazis' crimes against Jews, Roma, homosexuals and others, had just begun to be unveiled. The music, written for soprano, tenor, chorus and orchestra, takes us through history and switches between moods of deep bitterness, pride and confidence in the future. The lyrics are taken from two of the Swedish author and art historian Ragnar Josephson's poetry collections, The Chain (1912) and Jewish Poems (1916), in which Pergament among other things found, quote, "The feelings of a true Jew. Not a despicable nationalism, but a liberating feeling of belonging, even in the midst of great suffering ".
