Were the songs written for the Yiddish. Although serious classical composer’s works, there is a tradition of the European school. But the key has a zest for life, passion for pranks, the love of children-preschoolers and irrepressible temperament overcame all his efforts to be serious.
Once at the Studio gramzapisi «the Melody», Department of symphonic music, Shainsky so actively demanded the Studio Director that the frightened head of the Department had complained about him to the jury Entino, at that time head of children’s Department.
