Avshalomov: 4 Biblical Tabeleaux
+Silver: Shirat Sara
+Meyerowitz: Symphonie "Midrash Esther"
*** Milken Archive of American Jewish Music


These WORLD PREMIERE RECORDINGS will appeal to all lovers of orchestral tone poems in the Romantic and modernist traditions. Avshalomov's delightful miniatures shimmer with colors akin to Rimsky-Korsakov and Far Eastern music. Silver's penetrating soul portrait of the biblical matriarch Sarah is richly set for a full string orchestra. Meyerowitz's colossal Symphony Midrash Esther-premiered by the New York Philharmonic under Dimitri Mitropoulus, but recorded here for the first time-presents one of the most dramatic Jewish legends: how Queen Esther of Persia saved the Jewish People from a genocidal attack planned by the wicked courtier Haman. The finale, Purim, celebrates Esther's triumph.
