Portraits of Felicja Blumental to be Exhibited During International Music Festival

Portrait of Felicja Blumental by Foujita

Now in its 14th year, the annual Felicja Blumental International Music Festival plays an important role in making the musical scene interesting and alive. Although Tel Aviv has always been well known for its classical music activities, it never before had a classical music festival that combines, in one intense and exciting week: The annual Guitar Week, a colorful selection of concerts, movies and theatre productions, Chamber music, orchestral concerts, recitals, vocal music and family programs.

At midday, on Friday, May 18th 2012, the Felicja Blumental International Music Festival will be presenting a tribute to the French composer, Jules Massenet (1842-1912), in celebration of his Centenary.

For Annette Celine, Artistic Director of the Felicja Blumental International Music Festival, the music of Massenet and other composers of his time is a never-ending journey of discovery, reflecting the creativity and spirit of that era. “It was such a creative period in France, with beautiful paintings, great poetry and original designs inspiring and influencing each other. This is why, in addition to Massenet, I also requested that the artists sing arias by his contemporaries, in order to present this wonderful music in the context of its period.”
