Tucked away in heart of a serene garden in the picturesque Ein Kerem neighborhood is one of Jerusalem’s gems: the Eden-Tamir Music Center, established in 1968 by the pianist duo, Alexander Tamir and the late Bracha Eden.  Continuing our forty year-long partnership, the 55th Israel Festival will present two chamber concert series: a symphonic piano series and concerts of works by Johann Sebastian Bach.

The Symphonic Piano Series: Three Concerts

In the 18th and 19th centuries, hundreds of piano arrangements for two hands, four hands and two pianos were printed and published, allowing music-lovers and musicians to enjoy a repertoire otherwise performed by large groups in music centers. Composers wrote piano arrangements of their work for conductors to become more familiar with the secrets of orchestration and as a demonstration of virtuosity. The series will present a representative selection of arrangements for the piano.
