A collection of Hebrew Folk Melodies 
NIGUNIM Hebrew Melodies
 
Jewish folk music has always played an integral part in Gil and Orli Shahams’ lives. This release includes masterpieces by Ernest Bloch, Joseph Achron, and Leo Zeitlin, and as their idiomatic writing for the violin suggests, they all started their musical lives as child prodigy violinists. Also included is music from the wonderful Schindler’s List score by John Williams.
 
The center-piece of this release comes from the work sharing the album’s title Nigunim, commissioned by Gil and Orli from Israeli composer Avner Dorman. Dorman’s composition shares the universal appeal of the wordless melodies on which it was named. ’He has created a masterpiece and in my experience everybody who hears the piece falls in love with it they’re electrified by it,’ Gil explains. Indeed, when he recently toured the work, San Diego Today affirmed that ’it was hard to miss [its] visceral excitement and structural elegance,’ the Boston Globe admiring the ’uncommonly intriguing sounds’

"... Gil Shaham plays it all with passionate intensity - or with folk-like simplicity as the occasion requires. He is recorded rather closely, underlying the vocal quality of his playing (and catching some performance noise) - something which the portamento required by the style of these pieces will further enhance. His sister Orli is a responsive and sensitive partner ..."

Martin Anderson - International Record Review - October 2013


 "An entracing and moving labour of love from Gil Shaham and his sister Orli, exploring Hebrew meldoies. Bloch’s Baal Shem is beautifully played, but the lesser-known pieces also captivate." *****

Christopher Dingle - BBC Music magazine (Brief Notes section) - November 2013


"...This is a lovingly produced and presented recording of some hauntingly beautiful music from the violinist’s own label."

Carlos Maria Solare - The Strad magazine - August 2013
