Dear Friends of the Festival,
This is the 16th time that our annual Festival will celebrate for 6 days music from all over the world. On the 31st of March 2014 we shall begin the Festival with local talent. The folk musician Ilana Elya and the Modelius Ensemble will present their choices of local materials. We shall hear Baroque music with our guests from Spain La Ritirata, and our guests from Germany the Koelner Academy. Both ensembles will play music from their own country.
La Ritirata will play Spanish and South American music and the Koelner Academy will play music by C.P.E. Bach and J.S. Bach. The Manderling String Quartet from Germany will be joined by Israeli musicians for a program dedicated to Dimitry Shostakovich.
During this week we shall be able to listen also to Fado and Gypsy music. The spirit and life story of Missia will follow French music from the beginning of the 20th century. Our young audience will be able to enjoy an animated version of Cinderella performed by the Revolution Orchestra. We shall also show documentary films and there shall be some free admission performances.
Join us for six days that will remain with you for the whole year.
