    Listen all the way through. They are just BRILLIANT!

    Especially track 3.
    Definitely on the manic side (5:52)
    STUNNING WORKS.

    thanks for thinking of us and sharing.

    Who arranged them?

    I think David Louis (who now lives in Israel) was involved.

    Those Heartbeats

    The heartbeats on track #2 at 2:31, 3:19, and 6:51 are eerie and fit perfectly.

    who wrote these orchestrations? they are way above anything I’ve ever heard in Jewish music. It’s as if Mona, Eli Yoffee, Michael Issacson got warped into one person.

    THIS come close to showing the power of a niggun.

    The Bnei Heicholo Piano Concerto is cute. Hard to imagine how he kept all the separate directions playing while playing so quickly. People really had talent and sweated at it back then.
    A lesson for today’s musicians…

    Brilliant!!

    Yes I remember it was in the early Lameds
    Eli Lipsker was also involved with some of the arranging at the symphony hall. Hadar Hatorah put on a play about a farbrengen at intermission

    The conductor was the composer of the symphony a student of Hadar Hatorah as well and he wore a Kapoteh on the podium instead of a penguin suit Hadar Hatoroh blew shofar and made a farbrengen on stage with their mashpia

    Love it.

    Is it true that the Rebbe encouraged it and sent Bochrim to go?

    Its interesting that since this was made, tens of recording were, and still are,being made, of niggunim by different artists. Most, if not all, fall short of letting the niggunim speak for themselves. You HEAR the niggun-slow, rich, deep sound.without ’embellishment’, at least in the#5-#8.

    I remember going to a practice session in Carnegie Hall with Bentzion Shafran a”h.Musicians were from Met Opera Someone from HH wrote beautiful notes. It was in the 70’s.Maybe Kastel of Tzach remembers his name. E.Geisinsky

    Radio City?

    To the best of my memory what Rabbi Goldstein describes took place in Queens College which has a large and impressive auditorium. The concert took place very close to Pesach, but I’m not sure of the year.Some Hadar Hatorah alumni would surely know…
