Itaï Daniel – Mahzor Hayim


A French-Israeli pianist, conductor and composer, Itai Daniel is the author of an inspired and sensitive jewish musical opus, revealed by this CD. A unique discovery !


Few are the composers who devote a major part of their work to Jewish liturgical music. Itai Daniel, the French-Israeli pianist, orchestra conductor and composer, is one of them.

After important musical studies in Israel and the USA, Itai Daniel settled in Paris to devote himself to composing. In 2009, Itai Daniel was hired as the conductor of the Copernic Choral Ensemble in Paris, now recognized as one of the best Jewish choirs in Europe.

Author of numerous works, his music oscillates between classicism and modernity, in a unique blend that gives it a very special flavor. Much of his work is related to vocal music of Jewish inspiration. His choral compositions include prayers such as Hashkiveinu, Hevenu Shalom Aleichem, Shalom Rav, Kaddish, Oseh Shalom, … He has also composed three important cantatas for choir: Machzor Chayim (2006), Shema Koleinu (2007) and Bereshit (2008), as well as over twenty melodies for voice and piano solo from Jewish melodies.

This unique record, performed by Itaï Daniel, Anne-Sophie Durand, Aviva Timonier, Yska Benzakoun, Thomas Macfarlane, François Olivier, and the Francis Bardot Choirs leads us into the deepest part of the Jewish soul
