Ernest Bloch: Schelomo, Hebrew Rhapsody for cello solo and orchestra
Young German cellist Julian Steckel made an exceptional recording of three 20th century Jewish composers.
Ernest Bloch’s Schelomo , written during the first world war and rooted in Hebrew hymnody is definitely the centerpiece of the CD.
