CD presentation: Shmuel Barzilai “Sh'ma Israel”
“Sh’ma Israel,” the second CD recorded by Chief Cantor Shmuel Barzilai for Gramola, is brilliant like the first one, “Areshet Sefateinu,” featuring grand, sophisticated orchestral and choral arrangements by Dr. Mordechai Sobol. The selected compositions and their interpretation by Shmuel Barzilai, with Yedidya-Tzviel Weksler as soloist and duo partner, and with the S.F.Y. Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir, are also to be understood as a tribute to the fantastic Jan Peerce and the great cantors of his time, Sirota, Kwartin and Rosenblatt, as well as a bridge between Jewish tradition and Israeli culture, as the combination of the Hasidic and the Cantoral.
