with conductor and music lecturer Harvey Bordowitz
         ‎
Following the success of his series last year, Harvey invites you for another season. One of this ‎country’s most innovative and creative maestros, Harvey was the founding music-director and conductor ‎of the Herzliya Chamber Orchestra for 31 years.  For 40 years he has lectured both in English and in ‎Hebrew on a vast range of musical topics with humor, erudition and a deep love of music.‎
‎ ‎

16 January – CHERCHEZ LA FEMME – LOOK FOR THE WOMAN!‎
Women’s night – entirely devoted to women, including heroines and villainesses, witches, murderesses, ‎monarchs and mothers, seductresses and abandoned women: Madam Butterfly, Delilah, Tosca, the ‎Queen of Sheba and the Queen of the Night, Evita and My Yiddishe Mamma…‎

30 January – TCHAIKOVSKY – TORMENTED SOUL
The towering Russian composer Tchaikovsky wrote immortal works in every musical genre – operas, ‎symphonies, ballets, choral and chamber works. Ever tortured by his hidden homosexuality, even his ‎death was a mystery. Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Eugene Onegin and so much more, are his enduring ‎legacy.‎

13 February – MYTHS, LEGENDS AND FOLKTALES
From Mount Olympus to the Black Forest, from Scheherezade to Hansel and Gretel, the stories which ‎have formed the folk memory of entire peoples. Meet Sinbad, Orpheus, the Erl-King, and even Eliza ‎Doolittle ("My Fair Lady"), in music by Schubert, Humperdinck, Weber, Offenbach, Mussorgsky and so ‎many more …‎

27 February – COME BLOW YOUR HORN – WOODWINDS AND BRASS
Meet the instruments that take center stage in the orchestra, and touch our souls – the soothing flute, the ‎clarion trumpet, the silken clarinet and the soulful French horn. We will come to know these instruments ‎both as soloists in great masterworks and in their place within the orchestra in the symphonic repertoire.‎

13 March – VIVA ESPAÑA!‎
Love and death under the blazing Spanish sun. Fiestas and flamenco, and the seductive sounds of the ‎guitar. Hear Spanish music as written by native composers (Albeniz, Granados, De Falla and Rodrigo) ‎and great foreign composers such as Bizet, Chabrier and Rimsky-Korsakov, who paid tribute to Spain’s ‎music and passion.‎

Cost for the series of 5 lectures: NIS 295; ESRA members NIS 225. ‎
