The performers’ wish is that the sound of two string instruments, Russian balalaika and Spanish guitar – will touch the inward strings of the listeners’ hearts!
Just as the Old and New Testaments are woven together, so on this CD, Israeli praise songs to the God of Israel intertwine with New Testament hymns, merging together to glorify the One True God, as king David praised Him when he said: ”Truly my soul waited upon God: from Him my salvation”(Psalm 62:1)
'Your Hand on the Strings of my Heart' is entirely instrumental and very beautiful, with highly skillful musicianship, containing medleys of very interesting and enjoyable melodies.
This music CD will especially interest:
• People who know Russian Christian, Messianic or known Jewish songs
• People who like quiet instrumental music.
• People who love Israel and the Jews.
Oleg Gitlin is a famous, award-winning balalaika virtuoso who has performed in the most distinguished theatres and concert halls throughout Russia, Europe , America and Israel.
