Kol Nidrei for Cello and Orchestra

 Hat Tip:  My little brother, Bradley Beckman.

Jews have just honored their Holiest Day of the year, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Before the beginning of the night service of Yom Kippur at the synogogue, the Kol Nidrei [All vows] is recited/sang by the cantor and accompanied in various ways [sometimes a string quartet, or a piano, etc.].  The tradition has been to use the music of the German Romantic composer/conductor, Max Bruch.  

My brother Bradley sent me this awesome orchestra and cello version of Max Bruch's, Kol Nidrei. It is so moving and beautiful, it may give you goose bumps. 

Maestro Paavo Jarvi, conducts the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra with the cello soloist, Mischa Maisky. 

Please turn up the volume, play in full screen and enjoy this stirring music.
