The distinguished Georgian-born composer Giya Kancheli, a leading figure in the world of contemporary music, is the international guest of honor of the Tempus Fugit 6th Biennial for Contemporary Music. Directed by Israel's Joseph Bardanashvili, the event (whose title means "Time flies"), features a series of 13 concerts over four days, Nov. 1-4, at the Tel Aviv Musuem of Art. Kancheli was born in 1935 in Tbilisi and today lives in Antwerp. Kancheli's works often focus on the themes of light, dark, nostalgia, grief, fear, solitude and memory and are filled with simple, organic sounds and poignant silence. In addition to performance of four of his works - one per day - that will be performed throughout the festival, on Friday morning, November 4, at 11, he will speak at an "Encounter" in which the Ensemble Meitar will perform his Piano Quartet. Among other groups performing during the festival are the Spirit of Europe Orchestra conducted by Ronen Nissan, the Musica Nova Consort, the Aviv Quartet and the Israeli Contemporary Players conducted by Zolt Nagy. See under Classical Music listings, or call (03) 607-7000 for details.
