The grammy-award winning artist Hila Plitmann is known worldwide for her astonishing musicianship, light and beautiful voice, and the ability to perform challenging new works.

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, Tebilim and I Never Saw Another Butterfly). The album also features the Five Hebrew Love Songs, with poetry by Plitmann set to music by the composer Eric Whitacre (her husband).
 

                        Performance ****      Recording ****
" ...All the featured composers write in a highly accessible style retaining a strong adherence to tonality and eschewing idiosyncratic voval and instrumental effects. Whitacre achieves a disarming memorability with the simplest of means, and I wouldn’t be at all suprised if his cycle, scored for  soprano, vioin and piano gains considerable popularity... clarinettist Julian Bliss proves a sensitive partner to the charismatic Plitmann."

Erik Levi - BBC Music magazine - August 2012
