Chanukah from the Tel Aviv Opera House

Israeli violist Shiry Rashkovsky

On this second night of Chanukah, we continue a Young Artists Showcase tradition of presenting the young musicians of the Keshet Eilon String Mastercourse in Israel.

The young musicians in Tel Aviv tackled several modern works, including Takevet (The Train), a Klezmer-influenced work by Israeli composer Sanya Kroitor; David Popper’s Polonaise de Concert; and Rebecca Clarke’s Viola Sonata. The gala concert also included classics such as the Polonaise Brillante of Henri Wieniawski, performed by 14-year-old pianist and New Yorker Ari Boutris; and Mozart’s G Major Duo for violin and viola, performed by mother-daughter (and teacher-student) duo Ani Schnarch and Shiry Rashkovsky.
