Notes & Reviews:

'Celestial Dialogues' combines two great Jewish musical traditions: a klezmer clarinet solo - driving from the haunting virtuoso typical of traditional eastern European Jewish bands - and cantorial vocal passages that emanate from age-old Ashkenazi liturgical ritual. Both mystical and worldly, these 'dialogues' evoke timeless songs and dances of Jewish experience, striving for the spiritual purification of prayer.
