Light music, serious music and everything in between – this is the motto of a new program, which the veteran classical Atar Trio (Ofer Shelley – piano and  arrangements, Tanya Beltser – violin, and Marina Kats – cello) will present at two very special venues – HaTeiva in Jaffa (June 1 at 8:30 p.m.) and the Austrian Hospice in Jerusalem (June 5 at 8:30 p.m.).



At the center of the program is Paul Shoenfield’s colorful piece “Café Music,” a piano trio that presents “high” and “low” musical material side by side and explores the relationship between them. The piece was influenced by the light music of the 1940s and ’50s – jazz, blues and klezmer – all within a traditional classical form.

Also on the program is a piece by Israeli composer Daniel Jan Freidlin, improvisation segments and pieces by Claud Boling, George Gershwin and Maurice Ravel, as well as a new piece from Israeli composer and Landau Prize laureate Yitzhak Yedid. The piece is dedicated to Atar Trio.
