Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
The first of our seasonal gifts has arrived.
Mazeltov! Just in time for Hanukah which coincides neatly with Thanksgiving.
Whatever you celebrate, Josh and friends can definitely make it happy with their musical gifts.
The musicianship is excellent , the arranging is excellent too flowing from one piece of another and all is done with great humour. Although I wonder if Joo , Joshua Bell and Igudesman can make a vocal group too !!!!
Brilliant – and nary a sight/sound of that famous Bavarian carol Ma’oz Tzur!
What fun! Marvellous musicianship, Really a bit of everything.
Great fun, great musicianship, very interfaith. Happy Holidays. Thx for posting.
Hilarious, AND Brilliant, too!
Just saw/heard Mr. Bell with the Dallas Symphony on Thursday evening.
Simply stunning, to say the least!!!!
JB & the orchestra are top notch!!!!
more stuff with the depth of a pancake
In this case, a potato pancake?
Latkes dear, latkes.
Simply beautiful music, loved it. Betty
My 85-year-old, raised-Orthodox dad is going to love this when I show him tomorrow at Thanksgiving. Very sweet, and glad for all the diversity! Good musicianship, too.
If those red candelabras are supposed to be menorahs, they are missing 2 candles.
One of the benefits of a Reform education is a total lack of awareness of many of the niceties of orthodox life – here a Menorah [as in the Temple, had seven branches] whereas a Chanukiah, for the festival of Chanukah has nine branches – one for each of the eight days and one for the ‘Servant’ or Shamash, with which the others are lit.
This is wonderful. I just came from a Menorah lighting ceremony in Traditions Fl. over looking a beautiful lake with the sun setting . the Chabad House of Sturart Fl. put it on ,and it was wonderful. Traditional, non traditional,, and the Rabbi tied it in with Thanksgiving and Hanukkah . It was truly a celebration of both cultures.
