This is the first American publication of Blochs rhapsodic Poéme Mystique. Written in 1924 and first published (by F.E.C. Leuckart) in 1925, it is typical of Blochs 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. Poéme Mystique is a challenging piece for experienced performers.
