SFY Philharmonic Orchestra; Weksler, Yedidya-Tzviel; SFY Philharmonic Choir; Barzilai, Shmuel; Sobol, Mordechai
The second album that Shmuel Barzilai has recorded for Gramola shines like the first “Areshet Sefateinu” with great, sophisticated orchestral and choral arrangements by Dr. Mordechai Sobol. The selected compositions and their interpretation by Shmuel Barzilai, with Yedidya-Tzviel Weksler as a soloist and duo partner, with the S.F. Y. Philharmonic Orchestra and choir under the well-proven direction of Dr. Mordechai Sobol is certainly to be understood as a tribute to the fantastic Jan Peerce and the great cantors of their time Sirota, Kwartin and Rosenblatt, as well as a bridge between Jewish tradition and Israeli culture, as the combination of Hasidic and Cantoral music.
