Legendary violinist Itzhak Perlman and renowned cantor Yitzchak Meir Helfgot join forces for a musical exploration of liturgical and traditional works in new arrangements for both chamber orchestra and klezmer settings.
The music of Rejoice with Itzhak Perlman and Cantor Yitzchak Meir Helfgot – with reminiscences by Elie Wiesel, Joel Grey, and Tovah Feldshuh — showcases the confluences between the violinist’s famed classical technique and Helfgot’s magnificent voice, and is the result of a mutual admiration society. “It was a dream to someday sing with him,” remarks Helfgot. “And now the dream has become real.”
