Very nice version. Though maybe not as touching and expressive as the original recording of Naftule himself, it has the advantage of better recording technology, so the sound is much superior to Naftule's 1923 shellac sound...

sermo, thanks so much for your comment. One of the reasons I posted this: it's got to be extremely hard to play on violin! And Alicia Svigals' solo album, fidl, is a tour-de force.

I also like the use of cymbalom (aka tsimbl) in this arrangement.
