Music for the Jewish High Holidays

September 6, 2013

With Yom Kippur later this week, CPR Classical brings you "Music for the High Holidays.” 

Hosted by WQXR announcer Naomi Lewin, this one-hour special includes both traditional and composed music from Jewish liturgy (with a recording of Kol Nidre that features violinist Itzhak Perlman), as well as concert music based on High Holidays melodies. The program also explains a bit about the Jewish new year and its traditions.

Tune in to CPR Classical on Thursday at 7 p.m.
