This is the first American publication of Bloch's rhapsodic Poeme Mystique. Written in 1924 and first published (by F.E.C. Leuckart) in 1925, it is typical of Bloch's works of the 1920s. The wide ranging themes and impassioned tone are less infused with the "Jewishness" notable in the works that established his international reputation (Baal Shem, Schelomo, et al.), but no less characteristic of this modern master. Poeme Mystique is a challenging piece for experienced performers.
