Sounds in the Desert Festival #20

New compositions - Open Concert and Recording Session - Premiers Concert 2017

Recorded live on Thursday December 14, 2017 in the kibbutz club hall, Sde Boker.

In the tradition of the “Sounds in the Desert” festival, composers of concert music were presented on this stage with their works. The composers produced the concert themselves, and the event was both an open stage for the audience and a live studio where the works were recorded professionally. This year’s concert encompassed a wide range of styles and influences, presenting instrumental and vocal compositions by composers Yechiam Marx, Ido Shirom, Eyal Bat, Shahaf Auday, Uri Netanel, Dror Menashe and Yuval Shay-El.
