It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the Twenty-First Jerusalem International Chamber Music Festival in its new format. After twenty years of success, our Festival is rejuvenating. During five eventful days , we are presenting seven programmes featuring both challenging and cherished music. Each programme has been devised with a particular idea in mind, with a balance between familiar and well-loved works, rarely-performed masterpieces and stimulating new discoveries, both instrumental and vocal.

This year we also welcome many wonderful newcomers on their first appearance at the Festival, both Israeli and international performers, together with our familiar and treasured musicians who return, to their joy and ours, each year.

And, of course, you, our wonderful public, who join with us so wholeheartedly and are integral in making this Festival so unique.

Looking forward to seeing you in September!
