“Yonatan Razel at the Tel Aviv Cultural Hall with the Israel Symphony Orchestra Rishon Lezion” – a new album by Yonatan Razel from the concert that concluded the last piano festival on 11.11.17 in a hall full of space Conductor: To.
The new album is Yonatan Razel‘s fourth album. While his previous albums have been around for four years, the current album comes less than a year after his last album (“Poteach Lev“).
The album reveals yet another layer of his musical work. Yonatan Razel arranged all the songs and tunes for a symphony orchestra. He began his musical career in the classical music world, studied piano with Penina Salzman and is a graduate of the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. The album reflects the entire work of Razel over the years, which connects different worlds: between classical music and rock and roll and secular and religious.
The performance was a great success and the audience that filled the hall was able to hear Yonatan Razel in his warm voice and playing the piano, with his favorite songs from his three albums, as well as songs and other melodies. The singer Kobi Aflalo was a guest of the show and from there enters their exciting duet album for Aflalo‘s song “Yam Harachamim“. In the album, Yonatan Razel performed the beautiful song by Rachel Shapiraand Matti Caspi, “Od Yom,” alongside his hits that captured the Israeli audience, such as Katonti, Vehi Sheomda, Zion and others. His virtuoso music is expressed in a beautiful performance by Mozart (the second installment of Piano Concerto no. 24, No. 491).
Among the songs Yonatan Razal talks with the audience, tells about the works and his sources of inspiration, his humor and his unmediated personality.
