The Felicja Blumental International Music Festival celebrates 20 years

Felicija Blumenthal International Music Festival
The Felicja Blumental International Music Festival was founded in Tel Aviv, Israel by Annette Celine in memory of her mother, the Polish pianist. This year the festival celebrates 20 years, as well as marking the first festival since Celine's death in 2017. Running from 7 to 12 May 2018 at Tel Aviv Museum of Art, this year's festival features Christina Pluhar and Arpeggiata returning for the fourth time with a programme of ancient music from the Mediterranean. Also visiting the festival this year are soprano Gillian Keith and the Armonico Consort in a programme of secular cantatas by Bach.

Other events include a programme of songs sung by and associated with the festival founder Annette Celine, performed by soprano Yael Levita accompanied by Daniel Gortler. There will also be music from three leading Israeli women composers Chaya Czernowin, Shulamit Ran and Betty Olivero.

Full details from the festival website.
