It’s the Itzhak and Yitzchak Show!


Listen to a story on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday about violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman’s collaboration with the cantorial superstar Yitchak Meir Helfgot.
And in the Forward there’s a print story and podcast on the topic. Perlman and Helfgot have a new album called “Eternal Echoes” on the Sony Classics label. On the Forward’s Arty Semite blog there’s a sidebar on Perlman showing this reporter YouTube videos of great cantorial performances.
