Tzsiganskaia & Mademoiselle de Bucharest

Postby Carter O'Brien » Tue Jun 01, 2004 9:12 pm

howdy all, I've been told that the LP for Matelo Ferret's "Tziganskaia " credits Tziganskaia as "folklore russe, arr Alferay", and that Mlle de Bucarest is credited to P.M. Ferret (Pierre Matelot).

Would anyone know more about who "Alferay" is, or to what extent he or she may have left their own stamp on this song, on the Ferret album?

In a similar vein to the discussion about Yosl Yosl/Joseph Joseph elsewhere, I'd like to point out the similarities between the A or Hora section of Mademoiselle de Bucharest and the B part of the Klezmer tune "Long live Palestine". Matelo harking back to a lost era perhaps ?
