Eternal Echoes: Songs and Dances for the Soul

Eternal Echoes: Songs and Dances for the Soul


“It’s so easy for him…it’s just effortless,” says legendary violinist Itzhak Perlman, explaining what led him to pursue his inspired collaboration with Israeli-born and celebrated Cantor Yitzchak Meir Helfgot. The melding of Perlman’s soulful tone and virtuosic technique with Cantor Helfgot’s spellbinding tenor come together perfectly in this recording.

While rooted in the cantorial-liturgical tradition of Jewish music, the ten tracks on Eternal Echoes encompass a wide range of sonic modes and musical moods. Perlman has said that his idea “was to do ‘Jewish comfort music’ – everything that I recognize from my childhood is in this program.” The recording grew out of musical conversations with Helfgot and long-time collaborator Hankus Netsky.  The two masters began to explore the confluences of sound between the violinist’s famed classical technique (informed by a longtime interest in Jewish traditional music – Perlman has recorded a number of klezmer albums) with Helfgot’s magnificent golden voice, which has made the cantor a star of today’s liturgical music revival.
