Srul Irving Glick's (1934 – 2002) musical depictions of Jewish life in his Suites Hébraïques are particularly vivid examples of his chamber music. Glick wrote for many other genres, including art song, choral and symphonic music, but these six suites contain much of his very finest work. This recording of a live performance of the complete Suites Hébraïques, as presented in 2017 by Syrinx Concerts Toronto, gives us a particularly intimate view of the creative life of Glick, one of Canada's most prolific composers.

These six suites were written over a twenty-three year span, beginning in 1961. Glick's initial impetus was to compose a nostalgic work for his parents, invoking the rich musical culture he experienced at home. His father was a cantor, singing the prayers at synagogue and at home, and as a boy Glick sang in his father's choir. He notes that, “It was a common occurrence to sing en famille around the kitchen table during the Sabbath or for holiday occasions.”

The six Suites vary in structure, instrumentation and size, and reflect the respective commissioners, whether soloists or chamber groups. Of the Suite Hébraïque No. 6, Glick wrote that, “It is the only one for violin and piano, and it was intended to complete the cycle and allow the suites to be performed together at a single concert.” And now, for the first time, we have them all collected together in this beautiful recording.
