Notes Backstage With The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra

This broadcast gives you a glimpse of the activities of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra backstage at the Ohel Shem Theater in Tel Aviv during a rehearsal. The Orchestra has been led by many internationally well-known conductors. Because many of its playing members are from countries other than Israel rehearsal directions are given in several languages besides Hebrew. The conductor sings the piece being played, as a way to instruct the orchestra members.

Various orchestra members are interviewed during a break in the rehearsal. The broadcast ends when the audience is seated in the theater and hears the actual performance of a Schuman symphony.

Recordings restricted by copyright will only play 45 seconds to give you a sense of what that recording originally sounded like. These recordings can be identified by the words (Research Station) in the music player.
