One of Israel’s leading music ensembles, the Aviv Quartet, opens its new season on chamber concerts at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
“As they say in Hebrew, I keep dancing at several weddings at the same time,” says Israeli violinist Sergey Ostrovsky, the founding member of the Aviv Quartet, on Israeli the phone from his home in Geneva. “I play solo with orchestras and in recitals, I perform chamber music, I teach at Haute ecole de musique in Geneva, I serve as guest concert master for various orchestras, such the BBC Orchestra in Manchester, and I also conduct. Next year, I will lead orchestras in Georgia, Armenia and Russia, as well as appear in Israel with the Sinfonietta Tallinn orchestra from Estonia. Young Israeli soloists will participate in the latter concert.”
