Editorial Reviews

2013 collaboration between Classical violinist Itzhak Perlman and Cantor Yitzchak Meir Helfgot. While rooted in the cantorial-liturgical tradition of Jewish music, the ten tracks on Eternal Echoes encompass a wide range of musical moods. The two masters began to explore the confluences of sound between Perlman's famed classical technique with Helfgot's magnificent golden voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Traditional Sound September 12, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Simple, unadorned melodies, sung the way your Zeyde would have sung them if he had been the greatest Hazan of his generation.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the Best September 4, 2012
By Yossie
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I love Itzchak Perlman's violin playing, as in Schindler's list. I also am a great fan of Cantor Helfgot, who is without a doubt a Cantor and a voice that comes along once in a generation. However, the pairing of these two giants is not that successful. The music and violin playing is beautiful, but the tempo is much slower than in the original works, and this is very detrimental. The pieces come through as too slow and wistful, even the ones that lend themselves to a rousing audience participation in most previous arrangements, but NOT here. It also seems that Cantor Helfgot is holding back, in order to match the music, and it is a real shame to hold back such a beautiful tenor voice. I purchased this album, because I own all the other Helfgot albums, and wanted a complete collection, but this is definitely Cantor Helfgot's weakest work. If you want to have Cantor Helgot's complete collection of CD's, buy it, otherwise I can't recommend it. A great opportunity was missed here, and that is too bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! September 5, 2012
By Adam
Format:Audio CD
The CD is beautiful, definitely better than I expected! It is the kind of album that people from many different walks of life can enjoy. Helfgott's vocals are impeccable, and Perlman is, as always, an incredible master of the violin.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing October 25, 2012
By Andrea
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was disappointing. Something seems to be wrong with the sound balance as the voice is far too loud for the accompaniment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jewish soul music at its best September 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Perlman, as always, shines as the great Yiddishe violinist he is. This a "must have" album if you feel like sooting your Yiddishe Neshume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul-filling music November 6, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As someone who is a fan of both Perlman and cantorial music, I eagerly awaited the CD. I was delighted with the music and find myself playing it frequently. I even recommended it to my friend who bought it and thanked me for recommending the CD.

Totally amazing. Loved every minute of this incredibly beautiful CD. I listened to the whole CD 3 times the first day I got it and Helfgott's voice echoed in my ears for days.

Great CD I was looking forward to the release and wasn't disappointed. I downloaded at 1:00 am NY time (right when it was released) and then ordered a hard copy of the CD tonight.
