description: Osborne’s oratorio was inspired by Elie Wiesel’s book of the same title, chronicling the lives of the Hassidic masters. The work is characterized by a remarkable variety of expression. But lurking beneath the surface is a reminder of the anguish of the Holocaust. Portions of this work (notably “Shalom Aleykhem”) can be excerpted and performed with piano accompaniment.
