Tribute to Shalom Berlinski

by his son Claude Bert

“This year, my father Shalom Berlinski (1918-2008) would have been a hundred years old.
This is another generation, that of Leonard Bernstein born the same year as him, Leonid Kogan violinist, the famous Cantor Moshe Koussevitzki, Jean Bonfils the great organist of the Synagogue of La Victoire. The whole world of my father, his whole era, are slowly fading away. A time when professionalism, rigor, requirement, work were the predominant values.
But thanks to the work of Hervé Roten within the European Institute for Jewish Music, his memory and the emotion his voice aroused when singing in particular the great melodies of the synagogue of La Victoire, will be passed on to the future generations”.
