Notes & Reviews:

Founded in 1965, the Israel Chamber Orchestra's repertoire ranges from Baroque to contemporary, especially emphasizing vocal music and encouraging Israeli composers and performers.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
Of Light and Depth (1984) by Andre Hajdu (b 1932) is a set of interlinking preludes and interludes with varied textures (wind solos, bell-like percussion, flute and string bass, strings alone, etc) Music for Strings (1973) by Nahum Amir (b 1936) is a solid, imaginative work in three movements with evolving moods that offer joy, melancholy, intensity, and intellectual satisfaction. Two Psalms (1975) for oboe and strings by Tzvi Avni (b 1927), its lyrical line certainly feels that way. In Three Lyric Pieces in Mediterranean Style (1984) by Jacob Gilboa (1920-2007) the orchestration. The excellent engineering is balanced, mildly resonant, mellow, and true.
