WRTI celebrates Passover with two great specials Monday evening: A Musical Feast for Passover with Itzhak Perlman at 8 pm, and The Passover Story at 9 pm - bothon HD-2 and the All-Classical web stream.
In A Musical Feast for Passover with Itzhak Perlman, violinist Itzhak Perlman shares Passover music from many traditions, plus songs and memories from his childhood in Israel. The program draws its shape from the Passover seder and, like that ancient family ritual, the music gets progressively giddier as the show moves along.
This week on Crossover, we're happy to welcome back a distinguished artist, violinist Itzhak Perlman. In his newest release, he offers the audience a glimpse into the classical Jewish Cantorial repertoire, and beloved liturgical and traditional works in new arrangements backed by chamber orchestra and Klezmer musicians. Mr. Perlman is joined by his dear friend and colleague, Cantor Yitzchak Meir Helfgot.
Legendary violnist Itzhak Perlman has released a new album: Eternal Echoes: Songs & Dances for the Soul with Cantor Yitzchak Meir Helfgot. It features liturgical and traditional works in new arrangements backed by chamber orchestra and klezmer musicians. Mr. Perlman has said that his idea "was to do Jewish comfort music - everything that I recognize from my childhood is in this CD."
WRTI wishes all of our listeners celebrating the Jewish High Holidays a happy and healthy new year!
