Hebrew songs for the Young Pianist by Eric Steiner
Text edited by Peretz Halpern Rabbi, Nassau Hebrew Congregation, Rockville Center, N. Y.
This book offers an opportunity to the young pianist to play some of the very beautiful traditional Hebrew melodies in rather simple, yet well-sounding arrangements.
The book contains a few of the prayers of the Old Testament, as sung on Sabbath and other Holidays, and also some of the most popular folk songs and dances of Israel.
Teachers will find this book to be useful supplementary material for students in the second and third grade; more advanced students may advantageously use it for sightreading.
The English descriptions are not literal translations of the Hebrew text; they are meant to convey the meaning and significance of each song in brief words, which may help not only toward better understanding, but also toward more appropriate musical interpretation.
