Through The Ages In Jewish Song: Itzhak Perlman on His New CD Collaboration with Cantor Yitzchak Meir Helfgot
Latest update: August 23rd, 2012
I remember that evening. That is very nice to hear.
What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?
I am a classical music violinist. So my favorite music is classical. But I also enjoy listening to rock ‘n’ roll and to some of the oldies.
Do you have any interests or pastimes besides music? Are you a sports fan?
I’m a baseball fan. Unfortunately, my team has been playing very badly lately. Yes, I am a Mets fan.
Any closing thoughts on the new CD, with its release just two weeks away?
I am very excited about this. The violin is the perfect instrument to complement the chazzan. The violin touches the soul, and that is what the chazzan does in prayer.
I expect the CD to have a wide audience both here and in Israel. The cover is half in English and half in Hebrew. In Hebrew it is called “Hedim LaNetzach.”
Editor’s Note: “Eternal Echoes” (Sony Masterworks, distributed by Sameach) will be in stores September 4 and available wherever Jewish music is sold.
