Striking his own chord

This year’s Eilat Chamber Music Festival will take place in our southernmost resort February 2-7. The six-day program includes 15 concerts that cover expansive sonic and disciplinary terrain, including the works of many of the usual suspects – Mozart, Mendelssohn, Haydn, Schumann and J.S. Bach, but also material from contemporary composers, such as 20th century titans Francis Poulenc and Gyorgy Ligeti, and 57-year-old Marco Beasly. There will also be intriguing readings of extramural numbers by the likes of jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie, George Gershwin and even rock singer-bass guitarist and sometime cellist Sting.
