Max Bruch (1838–1920) was a German compositor and conductor. Was a Professor at the Higher music school in Berlin. His compositions include 2 operas, numerous vocal-symphonic works, 3 symphonies, works for violin — 3 concertos and orchestra and the Scottish fantasy, romances. His Violin Concerto No. 1, in G minor, Op. 26 (1866) is one of the most popular Romantic violin concertos.
The piece of Kol Nidre was composed in 1881 as the Adagio on 2 Hebrew Melodies for Cello and Orchestra with Harp and consists of variations on two themes of Jewish origin. The first theme comes from the Kol Nidre prayer, which lends the piece its name. This prayer is uttered during the evening service of Yom Kippur. In the piece the cello imitates the voice of a Cantor singing in the synagogue monotonically. The second theme of the piece is a quote from the middle part of the Isaac Nathan’s (1790–1864) composition “O Weep for Those that Wept on Babel’s Stream” on the text of Byron’s from his cycle of “Hebrew melodies”.
