We are next going to play a late recording made by point when the music contrasts sharply with the classic restraint and the refined expressive tenor of the Haydn. It is it is an interpretation with Leopold's the cops and the Philadelphia Orchestra or Ernest Bloch's Hebrew Rhapsody but cello and orchestra Shalom all Bloch wrote in two months in Geneva in 1916. In it he attempted to evoke the Hebrew spirit rather than any literal rendering of Hebrew music as Bloch stated.

No. Yes.
And. And.
