About this Recording

AMRAM: Songs of the Soul / Shir L'erev Shabbat / The Final Ingredient

David Amram is celebrated as one of America’s most adventurous composers. His works embrace classical, jazz, folk, and world music traditions, transforming them into vibrant new music that reflects the eclectic energy of the modern world. Songs of the Soul—a symphony in three movements—is a passionate affirmation of life with all of its joys and sorrows. Shir L’erev Shabbat presents a modern setting of timeless Sabbath prayers. The Final Ingredient, an opera originally premiered on network TV, tells the gripping story of World War II concentration camp prisoners who struggle— and ultimately succeed—in celebrating their traditional Passover seder under inhuman conditions.
