Eilat Chamber Music Festival hosts international artists E-mail

The Eilat Chamber Music Festival, one of the leading international festivals in Israel, took place from 1 to 4 February.

The event was hosted in Israel’s southern-most sea resort destination, Eilat, where attendees had the opportunity to enjoy many concerts, the beautiful water of the Red Sea, spectacular views of the hills that surround the resort, water sports, biking and hiking.

 Soloists from all over the world; the festival’s master class professors Amir Katz, Marianna Vasileva, Grigory Kalinovsky and Hillel Zori, and others joined together to present a fascinating chamber music programme. Trumpeter Jens Lindemann returned for a special jazz concert with leading musicians from Israel and abroad, and opera singers from the Vienna Tel Aviv Vocal Connection sang famous arias from popular classical and romantic operas.

Ian Bostridge, one of the world’s greatest tenors, joined Geneva Camerata, conducted by David Greilsammer, to present a programme featuring masterpieces from Baroque times to the present day.

Fifteen-year-old pianist Alexander Malofeev, who won the young Tchaikovsky Competition in his first performance in Israel, performed a complex and varied programme of exquisite pianistic discoveries.

4th Blues Festival in Tel Aviv E-mail

Tel Aviv’s fourth Blues Festival took place from 11 to 14 January in clubs and bars across the city. The winter edition of the festival was an opportunity for festivalgoers to fully experience the magic and warmth of acoustic blues, from the fields of Mississippi to the alleyways of New Orleans.

The festival took place across 20 venues and attracted well over 10,000 blues-lovers. It took a more intimate approach, offering dozens of performances, lectures, jam sessions, sweepstakes, collaborations and original productions exclusive to the festival.

Rural Grammy-winning blues artist Alvin Youngblood Hart, one of today’s top blues guitar players, was the headline act, opening the festival with one show in the Barby Club.
