There is a generally held view that art, basically, makes the world a better place in which to live. Guy Mintus would certainly go along with that, and is doing his bit to improve things here on terra firma, both off and on the stage.The 25-year-old New York-based Israeli jazz pianist is on the bill of the Eilat Chamber Music Festival, which is due to take place February 1 to 4.Over the years, the festival has gained a reputation for proffering an eclectic range of material, and the 12th edition is following variegated suit. The four-day program features such headliner acts as stellar Russian violinist Viktoria Mullova, who will join forces with the Geneva Camerata, under the aegis of young Israeli conductor David Greilsammer, on the second day of the festival. The concert repertoire takes in works by Haydn, English Baroque composer Matthew Locke, Mozart and young Swiss composer and cellist Martin Jaggi. The latter’s composition, “Uruk,” was commissioned by the Geneva Camerata and will receive its first Israeli airing in Eilat.
