The Ancient Question … a voyage through Jewish songs
Hila Plitmann, soprano
Julian Bliss, clarinet
Christopher Glynn, piano
Thomas Bowes, violin
Andres Kaljust, viola
On this album she brings together a very personal programme that draws on her familial roots in Jewish culture and song; from traditional folk music (Five Yiddish Songs), to contemporary compositions (Bridges of Love, Tehilim and I Never Saw Another Butterfly). The disc also features the Five Hebrew Love Songs, with poetry by Plitmann set to music by the composer Eric Whitacre.
"Plitmann's selection is carefully chosen for maximum variety of expression and instrumentation ..." - BBC Music Magazine
