MEZZO TV is accomplishing the nearly impossible in today’s world of streaming and downloading; it is an incredibly successful, subscription-based TV channel dedicated to classical music, jazz and ballet.
Now in its 20th year, MEZZO is doing better than ever. Tonight, MEZZO will film the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in Tel Aviv’s Heichal Hatarbut for an evening of Russian repertoire. Talit Communications represents MEZZO in Israel, which is carried on both HOT and YES. MEZZO’s CEO Christophe Winckel sat down with The Jerusalem Post to discuss the channel’s history, the concept of a premier league, and the longstanding partnership with Israel’s Philharmonic Orchestra.
