The Melody Lingers
Once again this year, we were treated to a stirring rendition of the Kol Nidre instrumental composed by Max Bruch, through the virtuoso talent of cellist Fran Rowell, accompanied on piano by Beth Robin.
The haunting melody lingers in the memory for a very long time. To help savor the echoes of those beautiful sounds, here is a performance found on YouTube, from a Papal Concert to commemorate the Holocaust held at The Vatican in Rome on April 7. 1994. Lynn Harrell performs on the cello.
Want to hear more? Listen to another version of the piece over on last year's blog post, Echoes of Kol Nidre.
