'Minstrelsy has always been with us, despite a romantic tendency to link it with mediaeval times, but on the CD of Hezy Levy we are brought to a fresh appreciation of how contemporary minstrelsy can be so thoroughly entertaining! Levy captivates from the first moment - appearing like some dark, passionate exotic sculpture from an ancient civilisation, a dusky hue that hints of secrets. But when he begins to sing, in a liquid crystalline tenor voice, of all the sobbing sighs of generations of happy or unhappy lovers, we wake to a realisation: this is the long lineage of minstrelsy make fresh for our own time. With unerring skill Levy weaves his voice and guitar together in a tapestry of seductive sounds in a manner unique to him, and yet we recognise that this is how we always dreamed that these songs should be presented'.(Anthony Rooley) Hezy Levy began his musical education studying the classical guitar. He graduated in choral conducting and at the same time began vocal training . He Sang in Israel's only professional choir ('The Cameran Singers'), specialized in baroque and Renaissance music in Israel and abroad and performed as a soloist in festivals throughout the world. Hezy Levy's specialization in both - singing and playing - makes him a rare example of a self accompanied classical singer who is continuing in the tradition of troubadours of old. His personality and style are a fusion of cultures - Western (baroque, Renaissance and classical) Eastern (Ladino and Yemenite) and modern Israeli (as a composer and performer). 'Hezy Levy charms the listener with his fine tenor voice and ebullient personality'. (Emma Kirkby).
