“WHEREVER YOU look at Hatikvah, there is a story. Peel off the layers and you will see that not only is there an endless history, there is also a yearning for an eternal future.”

This is what concert pianist and musicologist Astrith Baltsan told Ilan Evyatar, writing in The Jerusalem Post, in 2010.
