Celestial Dialogues combines two great Jewish musical traditions: a klezmer clarinet solo— deriving from the haunting virtuoso sounds typical of traditional eastern European Jewish bands—and cantorial vocal passages that emanate from age-old Ashkenazi liturgical ritual. Both mystical and worldly, the “dialogues” evoke timeless songs and dances of Jewish experience, striving for the spiritual purification of prayer. Composer Ofer Ben- Amots has also created unforgettable vignettes and character portraits of eastern European Jewry in Shtetl Songs, and he further explores the mysteries of the Sabbath in Hashkivenu— Song of the Angels.
