Reviews

'Shaham and Erez deliver outstandingly committed performances, revelling in the music's virtuosity, fantasy and heightened intensity of expression' (BBC Music Magazine)
In 1912 Achron transcribed Eli Zion by Leo Zeitlin (1884–1930), originally written for cello. It is based on a traditional melody collected by Kiselgof, used for ‘Tishe b’Av’, a commemoration of the destruction of the ancient Jerusalem Temple. The searching mood is created by the violin’s cantorial fervour supported by modal piano harmony.

En 1912, Achron transcrit Eli Zion de Leo Zeitlin (1884–1930), écrite à l’origine pour violoncelle. Elle repose sur une mélodie traditionnelle recueillie par Kiselgof, utilisée pour «Tisha b’Av», commémoration de la destruction du Temple ancien de Jérusalem. La ferveur cantoriale du violon soutenue par l’harmonie modale du piano crée une atmosphère pénétrante.

1912 transkribierte Achron Eli Zion von Leo Zeitlin (1884–1930), das ursprünglich für Violoncello angelegt war. Dieses Stück bezieht sich auf eine traditionelle Melodie, die Kiselgof aufgezeichnet hatte und die zum „Tisha B’Av“ eingesetzt wird, einem Trauertag, an dem der Zerstörung des Jerusalemer Tempels gedacht wird. Die eindringliche Stimmung wird durch die kantoriale Leidenschaft der Geige mit der Unterstützung der modalen Harmonien des Klaviers erzeugt.
