50 musicians, 3 years of work, 4 singers and dozens of vocal and Kids choir. This summarizes one of the most spectacular musical projects in Jewish music. Entitles, “Chabad with Moshe Laufer”, the new album which its producers describe as “unprecedented”.

Produced by Levi Tubul, the new disk is set to be released for Shavous.

The album takes Moshe Laufer back to his early days, 30 years ago, when he produced his first Chabad music CD. Laufer is a legendary composer, conductor and arranger, who recently was the recipient of the prestigious ACUM music award. In this latest work, he presents a up-till-now unsuccessful endeavor, bringing together the sound of modern music and Chabad’s authenticity and sensitive touch, creating a fusion in which neither end is jeopardized.

“He wanted to create an album that could introduce the new sound of music into Chabad music, without compromising the perfection of the notes,” said a source involved in the production.

The album features four Chabad singers including Shlomo Simcha and Mendy Jerufi. Newcomers Shmulik Listvand, brother of the famous  Ami, and Menachem Levy are also featured on the album in addition to Nachman Seltzer’s Shira Chadasha Boys Choir.

The last ends are being tied together, ahead of the album’s release. In the final masterpiece, which was produced jointly by the finest musicians, is conducted by Eli {Ilya} Lishinsky.

    I wish Laufer would come out with an only music cd like his “music of the lubavitcher chassidim” an awesome album that never bores you! But I’m sure this album will be nice too.

    Your quote, “up-till-now unsuccessful endeavor”, is a knock on dozens of Jewish artists and albums, besides for being absolutely incorrect. Ever heard of a guy named Avraham Fried? Mona Rosenblum? Mordechai ben David? Andy Statman? Avi Piamenta? And in fact, Moshe Laufer himself? These are all people who have produced Chabad Niggunim and niggunim CDs in a modern way with sensitivity.

    Incredible arrangements! How many niggunim are going to be on the album?
