The New Subscription Series Tel-Aviv University's School of Music Clairmont Hall, Tel-Aviv May 4 Concluding the chamber series at the new Tel-Aviv University's School of Music, this fine concert/ lecture revolved around French composer Maurice Ravel. In his introductory lecture, school head Prof. Tomer Lev eloquently explained the different periods within Ravel's life, creating a tangible framework with which to understand the very different nature of the four works presented, from the pre WWI war impressionism to the post-war harsher, less melodious style. Featuring accomplished musicians like Nitai Zori (violin), Hillel Zori (cello) and Michal Tal (piano) alongside several of the school's selected students, the first three pieces were all well presented. But the real sensation appeared only in the last piece, Ravel's String quartet in F major. This beautiful work was masterfully interpreted by the young Aviv Quartet, presenting it with the utmost sensitivity and an electrifying emotional power. Although largely dependent on volunteers, the series' organizers should make every effort to encourage these fine musicians return in the years to come.
