Notes Music of Israel - Interview By Boris Joffe

David Rosolio , one of Israel's most respected music critics, is interviewed on today's Vistas of Israel program by Boris Joffe, an American correspondent. Mr. Rosolio believes that there are three different trends in Israeli music:

1) a vigorous and active evolution of creative power; 2) a widespread public interest in music; 3) a high standard of performance by all involved. The public interest in music is derived from the backgrounds and upbringings of the population according to Mr. Rosolio. The newer immigrants also want to preserve the folk music of their former lands or else it will become lost. Some of the leading composers and conductors are discussed as well as the demand for the various forms and types of music.
