"My friend and teacher, Rabbi/Cantor Samuel Linkovsky z'l, passed away at a considerably young age. To commemorate the first Yurtzait, Samuel's final CD recording entitled 'Sh'ma Yisrael' has been released by his family.
The beauty of Samuel's voice lay not just in his beautiful coloratura, but also in his ability to project the meaning of liturgy through his entire being. It is impossible to remain indifferent, when listening to his singing.
This highly professional and uniquely arranged recording includes selections from different genres: Classical Chazzanut with a modern flavor, Israeli Chassidic Festival melodies, and an original arrangement of a long forgotten Yiddish song."
The recording seems to be a family project. You can order the disc and read more about Linkovsky at the website RememberTheCantor.com. In the meantime, here are some samples to listen to.
