(8notes PREMIUM)


Ozhidanie is claimed by many Klezmer orchestras as a Jewish piece. Its origins are, however, by no means clear. The song was written by a Russian, Herold Lavrentievich Kittler, and very little is known about his background, save for the fact that he served as a conductor of the 6th Tavrichesky Grenadier Regiment in the Russian army. Indeed, many Russians continue to claim this as a Soviet Army song, despite the many recordings by Klezmer groups.
