Beer-Sheva Municipal Conservatory
The superb and intimate Chamber 7 series returns with unusual repertoire performed by excellent musicians from around the country and the world, under the artistic direction of the Conservatory and the Sinfonietta, in fact a joint venture of the Conservatory of Music, the Israel Sinfonietta Beer-Sheva and the Center for the Performing Arts. The third concert in this series is a musical celebration combining the sounds of the violin, viola, cello and mandolin with the new and reputable Steinway piano that was recently acquired by the municipal conservatory.
Pianist Revital Hachamov will inaugurate the piano at this concert, with masterpieces for piano and string instruments by Haydn and Brahms, and for dessert: a quartet for mandolin and string instruments by the Greek composer Kioulaphides.
The director of the conservatory, Yaki Reuven, talks about the new piano: “A purchase of this kind is a once-in-a-generation celebration, and thanks to the Municipality of Beer-Sheva, with its constant investment in culture and education, we have been able to acquire one of the best instruments. At the Conservatory there are about 600 children, teenagers and adults studying music, of whom 150 are pianists. We offer them the opportunity to perform in recitals, competitions and chamber music ensembles. As the director of the conservatory, with our goal of encouraging students to pursue excellence, I am equally committed to providing excellent musical instruments.”
