Ernest Bloch: From Jewish Life (excerpt) - Prayer With E. Soulard On Accordion And P. Meyer On Clarinet

Talking with God

American-Swiss composer, Ernest Bloch was deeply influenced by his Jewish upbringing, as is evident by this work. Here, the image is clear: a man walks up the central isle of his synagogue. He takes a seat and clasps his hands together. The music imitates a pattern of thought, showing his intricate and worried thoughts as well as his prayer for blessings and joy. Gather your thoughts alongside this praying man.
