The Israeli Violin since 1948
MetadataShow full item record
The focal point of this project is researching the role of key Israeli composers through compositions written during the first two decades of the State of Israel. The dissertation explores the influences that led the composers to write a specific piece, whether it served as a personal dedication or perhaps reflection on current events happening in Israel contemporaneous to the times. Key questions include: Where are the origins of each composer and what brought them to Israel? Was there a connection between the Israeli composers and prominent violinists during the compositional process?
