A beautiful collection of great Jewish Music. Classics by Ernest Bloch and Max Bruch, mixed with rarely heard gems by Maurice Ravel, Zavel Zilberts, Jacob Wasilkovsky, and David Meyerowitz. "Wie Shlecht es is Ohn Gelt", a Yiddish Theatre gem, is alone worth the price of admission for its mixture of pathos and humor. The songs by Zilberts are an important and beautiful part of the Jewish music legacy that must be heard.
“…exceptional control as well as an outstanding gift of communication, his performances of Schelomo, Kol Nidre, Kaddisch, and the excerpt from Baal Shem can hold their own with the likes of Rostropovich, Ma, Rose, Fournier, and Starker—elite company indeed.
Highly recommended for Locker’s highly involved, warm, and technically masterly readings.'

Nothing to say except that I was looking for typical Jewish songs as background music for a play. This music was VERY beautiful - just not what I was looking for.Published 8 months ago by cyndie
This was an Amazon recommendation when I bought another recording, and I am glad I did not ignore it. I had never heard of the cellist, but he does a fine job. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Judy in Upstate NY
