Notes and Editorial Reviews

While rooted in the cantorial-liturgical tradition of Jewish music, the ten tracks on Eternal Echoes encompass a wide range of musical moods. Perlman said that his idea “was to do Jewish comfort music – everything that I recognize from my childhood is in this program.” The two masters began to explore the confluences of sound between Perlman’s famed classical technique with Helfgot’s magnificent golden voice. “I always find that there is a real communication between voice and violin,” says Perlman. “This was the fulfillment of a dream,” says Helfgot. “When I was a child growing up I always knew about Itzhak Perlman, so of course I said yes, right away! I am very happy that this dream became real.”

Released to coincide with
Read more the High Holy Days, these exquisitely crafted musical pictures include a stately and dramatic arrangement of “Sheyibone Bays Hamikdosh,” the operatic “Shoyfer Shel Moshiakh,” written by Abraham Goldfaden, father of the Yiddish theater, “Dem Trisker Rebn’s Nign,” a song Perlman learned from his klezmer collaborators and “Mizmor L’Dovid,” an arrangement of Psalm 23 which may be the most famous piece on the album. Eternal Echoes wraps up with “Kol Nidrei,” the famous prayer for Yom Kippur, in a simple chamber music setting that contrasts tastefully with past grandiose arrangements familiar to fans of singers like Richard Tucker and Jan Peerce.
