Magnificent Solo Piano Album

Also available on iTunes!

The sequel to the highly acclaimed “Totally Chassidic” and “A Niggun is Forever” piano albums, this masterful performance covers the magnificent melodies sung at Farbrengen at the conclusion of Rosh Hashana, Simchat Torah, Pesach, and Shavuos.

At the main Farbrengen on the second day of Rosh Hashana 5715 (1954), the Lubavitcher Rebbe related the following:
“My father-in-law [the previous Rebbe] related in a talk that his father [the Rebbe Rashab] would reference all the Rebbes of Chabad during the two days of Rosh Hashana, either by sharing a word of Torah that they taught or by relating a story about them. In another talk the [previous] Rebbe said that when one sings a song that another composed, cherished, or was very attached to, the singer connects with the soul of that person in an attachment deeper than achieved through intellect alone. We should therefore sing a niggun (song) from each of the Rebbes, one they either composed or cherished.” 

Chassidim extend this custom to include Farbrengen at the conclusion of Simchat Torah, Pesach, and Shavuot. The niggunim Daled Bovos (Track 9) and Nye Zheritzi Chloptzi (Track 10) were sung at the conclusion of all major Farbrengen and are customarily preceded by the Niggun Hachono (Track 06).

Very lovely! I like the understated way they are played which is refined and not showy – very much in keeping with the ‘dveikus’ atmosphere; even in the fast ones. Kol Hakavod for such beautiful music! -- Prof. Jeanne Zaidel-Rudolph, Composer-pianist. Music Dept., University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.
