On Friday, March 24, 2023 at 7 p.m., the Gesa Power House Theatre will present The Tel Aviv Wind Quintet.
The Tel Aviv Wind Quintet was founded in 2009 by young Israeli musicians, and quickly established itself as a leading chamber ensemble, excelling in rich repertoire and multidisciplinary works involving movement and theatre. Today, the quintet performs more than 30 concerts each season all around Israel, including its most prestigious concert venues, such as the YMCA (at the Jerusalem International Chamber Music Festival), the Jerusalem Music Centre, the Mormon University, Henry Crown Hall in the Jerusalem Theater, the Israel Conservatory and the Tel-Aviv Museum. Special emphasis is placed on creating perennial cultural and educational programs for underprivileged communities in the periphery of Israel, from Kfar Blum to Mitzpe Ramon. International tours brought the Quintet to Switzerland, France, Germany, Kazakhstan, and China.
“One of the leading and most interesting ensembles in the local scene – the Tel Aviv Wind Quintet… five talented musicians present a noble exchange of chamber music.”
—Gali Margalit, Spot It Magazine, 4.6.2020
The quintet is a member of the Independent Musicians Organization of the Felicja Blumental association. It is supported by the Culture Administration of the Ministry of Culture and Sports. It was awarded the Eilam prize for Israeli performers (2011) as well as grants from the Rabinovich Foundation for the Arts, Haifa Arts Foundation, the Ronen Foundation and the Israel Lottery Council for Culture & Arts.
The Tel Aviv Wind Quintet’s debut album was released in the end of 2016, including works by Bach, Beethoven, Ari Ben-Shabetai (World premiere recording) and Piazzolla. ‘LIVE’, the ensemble’s second album, was released in April 2018. It includes live concert recordings, collaborating with pianist Yaron Kohlberg.
