Concert Season - 2013/2014
In the Human Voice Series our program will feature monumental works, such as Bach's St. John Passion, Fauré's Requiem and Vivaldi's Stabat Mater. Alongside some of Bach's cantatas, we shall present works written in the 20th century that were inspired by his oeuvre, such as Collage over B-A-C-H by Estonian composer Arvo Pärt and Three Pieces in Old Style by Polish composer Henryk Gorecki. This series will feature first class soloists and choirs from Israel and abroad.
The series hosts, among others, the pianist and conductor Xu Zhong, clarinet player Sharon Kam, Colombian harpist Edmar Castaneda, the singer Hemi Rudner and the violinist Itamar Zorman. The series will host the conductors Ruben Gazarian, Noam Zur and Vakhtang Kakhidze. Among the works that will be performed are: Mozart's clarinet concerto, Mahler's Symphony no. 4, arranged for chamber orchestra, and a chosen piano concerto by Mozart or Beethoven, performed by the laureate of the 2014 Rubinstein piano competition, who will be a guest of this series as well.
