Sitting in a Tel Aviv café over an odd combination of Tuborg beer, sliced watermelon and heavily seasoned green olives, Shmuel Elbaz sips his beer and says: “I like being unique. I like doing something that no one has ever done before.”

Musician, music arranger and symphony orchestra conductor Elbaz did just that when he orchestrated and performed several Bach sonatas on the mandolin, literally a world premiere. And now he is about to boldly go where no one has gone before by combining the two loves of his life: conducting symphony orchestras and the classical music of Andalusia.
