Sarah Iancu, cello - David Bismuth, piano
RELEASE OF THE 7th CD FROM THE “CLASSICAL MUSIC” COLLECTION
Beautifully performed by Sarah Iancu, solo cellist of the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, and virtuoso pianist David Bismuth, this program features 23 instrumental pieces inspired by liturgical music, Chasidic tunes and Yiddish songs.
An opportunity to discover – or rediscover – works by Ernest Bloch (Hebrew Meditation, Abodah), Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco (Kol nidre, Hebrew Song), Vladimir Dyck (Hebrew Legend), Fernand Halphen (Prayer), Abraham Goldfaden (Rozinkhes mit mandlen), Jack Yellen and Lew Pollack (My Yiddishe Momme).
Some parts of this recording also highlights composers of the “New Jewish School” of St. Petersburg – such as Joel Engel, Alexander Krein, Lazare Saminsky, Joachim Stutschewsky, Jacob Weinberg and Leo Zeitlin – who, under the influence of the Russian folk movement at the turn of the 20th century, set out to create a national Jewish music.
An essential recording, of great sensitivity, accompanied by a richly documented booklet of 36 pages…
This CD was produced thanks to the support of the Fondation du Judaïsme Français, the Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah, the Foundations Henriette Halphen and Irène et Jacques Darmon, under the aegis of the FJF, and the Alliance Israélite Universelle.
