The Jerusalem Chamber Music Festival takes place between August 31 and September 9, for the 20th time now, which even its founder and artistic director Elena Bashkirova finds hard to believe.

Relating to both the program and the participants, Bashkirova describes the upcoming event as “a festival of reminiscence and renewal.” The program features “flagship pieces and smaller gems... together with some of the works we commissioned over the years. And, in our time-honored tradition, we have commissioned two new works for the festival by Israeli composer Omri Abram and German Sven-Ingo Koch,” she says.
