A four-day piano festival in the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
In just four packed days, the halls of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art will resonate with every genre of music from classical and jazz to rock, folk and even Gospel. November 9-12, the 18th annual Tel Aviv Piano Festival hosts a wealth of musical talent, young and established, local and international. With collaborative performances by leading Israeli composers, international musical guests, and up-and-coming artists, though a piano festival by name, the event is so much more than a showcase of ebonies and ivories by nature.
The Tel Aviv Piano Festival opens with six diverse performances, one of which is an acoustic feature by veteran singer-songwriter Efraim Shamir. With the help of special guests Yehuda Caesar (one of the most prominent guitarists in the country) and Sagiv Cohen (famous for singing a fusion of European, North African and Arabic music called Mizrahi), the mighty Shamir captivates audience members with lyrics that span the Mediterranean coastline. This year’s lineup is also family friendly, with special interactive performances geared towards children like themusicalretelling of children’s books written by the great Israeli author, Dvora Omer. With a groundbreaking number of performances, and at least three times as many artists, each day has something new and exciting in store forlisteners.
