"Bernstein's music takes on a greater focus as a result, but Pisar also supplies an element of hope that comports with the earthy rhythms and consoling music Bernstein gave the Kaddish texts. Axelrod's rhythmically energetic performance caught the music's emotionality while avoiding bathos." —Financial Times
