Ernest Bloch (1880-1959), Swiss-born, decided early on to express the Jewish soul in music. Later, as an American citizen, he composed works illustrating American history. Once more famous and popular than today, cellists remain faithful to his rhapsodic work "Schelomo," about King Solomon. On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will hear some of Bloch's most famous works.
