Rivkele (Rebeka) a Tango from Warsaw, Poland in the early 1900’s. It is a little surprising that tangos were popular in the European Jewish community around 1920. There had been a large group of Jewish immigrants going to Argentina in the late 1800’s, and they in turn brought the Argentine tango back to Europe where it became very popular, especially in Poland. Those musicians made the tango format their own, adding the sound of popular Jewish cabarets and theaters along with Yiddish lyrics. The music came from a book of Yiddish songs, “Yiddish Songs from Warsaw” compiled by Jane Peppler, who gave permission to use her melodies and harmonies for this setting for clarinet duet.
