Description: Although each of these works has plenty of available recordings, the coupling is rather rare, covering as it does almost 30 years, from the 1923 Baal Shem to the 1952 Suite whose Hebrew musical sources are more authentic than the American Indian themes Bloch claimed to have heard on a visit to New Mexico which are the basis of the violin concerto of 1938 (but which mysteriously evoke cantorial chants anyway). Zina Schiff (violin), Royal Scottish National Orchestra; José Serebrier.
