We’ve got some great news for lovers of classical music and piano in particular. Tel Aviv University’s Buchmann-Mehta School of Music is a partner in the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition, considered one of the biggest and most important contests in the classical music world. This year, due to the global crisis, the event has been postponed and instead a virtual festival will be held in the same timeframe.
The highlight of the festival will be live broadcasts from Claremont Hall at Tel Aviv University, including 12 piano recitals featuring the next generation of Israeli pianists. Seven of the chosen musicians are honors students from the school, and two more are graduates who have gone on to careers abroad.
The festival will begin on May 5th and continue for two weeks. Every day, at 18:00, events will be broadcast on the Facebook pages of the Rubinstein Competition and the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music.
