Nigunim Hebrew Melodies
The new release from siblings Gil and Orli Shaham is a wonderful and thought provoking offering of Hebrew melodies. Masterpieces by Bloch, Achron, and Zeitlin surround a sparkling centerpiece: The world-premiere recording of Avner Dorman's NIGUNIM, commissioned by the artists. "... a dynamic performance... Mr. Shaham plunged into the virtuosic thickets of the Scherzo with aplomb, revealing it's improvisatory melodies with flair. The Presto unfolded in a kaleidoscopic blaze, a frenzy of jazzy rhythms and explosive energy." - New York Times, on the world premiere of NIGUNIM.
