Dear Festival Friends

We are extremely happy to be able to reunite with you in a musical celebration of renewal after a two-year absence. With great excitement we present you with a Festival that features the very best of chamber music, performed by many of our outstanding musicians who have expressed how much they missed playing in Jerusalem and how glad they are to be able to return. Joining them are some wonderful new faces in programmes that as usual in our Festival combine many familiar and celebrated masterpieces with fascinating and rarely performed works. Each of the eight programmes brings together these works which include great chamber music quintets, wonderful songs, and contemporary music with two exciting premieres, one international and one Israeli.

We are all so delighted to be back in Jerusalem after so long, performing together for our unique audience.

We look forward to celebrating with you in September.
