Radzynski: The Voice Of The Soul
Format: COMPACT DISC
Plesser, Zvi; Halevi, Chen; Porat, Matan; Zori, Hillel
This album of works by Jan Radzynski featuring cello can be understood as a microcosm of the composer's oeuvre. As a teenager in Warsaw, Radzynski focused on his study of the cello, and this greatly shaped his writing for the instrument. This is wonderfully evocative music, heard here in beautiful performances. Cellist Zvi Plesser studied with Zvi Harel in Israel and David Soyer in the USA, and is a graduate of the Juilliard School where he studied with Zara Nelsova. He has won numerous awards including First Prize at the Washington International Competition and was an AICF scholarship recipient. He made his American debut at Carnegie Hall at the age of 17 and has performed with many leading orchestras both in Israel and abroad, including the Israel Philharmonic, the National Symphony Orchestra, the Buffalo Philharmonic and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.
