Letter of Commendation from MK Limor Livnat (2012)

MK Limor Livnat

Greetings from the Minister of Culture and Sport of the State of Israel
Limor Livnat, MK
to the 5th International Israeli Music Competition
and the 4th Ernest Bloch Music Competition

Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness and life to everything. - Plato

It is an honor and a pleasure to welcome all those attending the International Israeli Music Competition, taking place for its fifth year in London, England.

This prestigious competition provides an important stage for Israel's successful musical message. Year by year, the number of those wishing to participate in the competition increases and the scope of the nations they come from grows, proving that in a world where artists are exposed to many musical heritages, Israel's variegated music has won special appreciation.

Israeli music has many sources of inspiration. Its sounds are drawn from many ethnic groups, from ancient Jewish tradition and from our own modern state. It refers to the here and now, to the development of original creations that do not cease to surprise the most critical ear.

In these times, when Israel fights for its international reputation, Israeli music is our best ambassador, for where words fail, music speaks with a strong, fresh voice. Under my leadership, the Ministry of Culture and Sport will continue to promote classical music in Israel and the world, from the belief that its beauty and charm have no rivals, and because of its great service in presenting the lovely face of our country.

My wishes for success go to all the participants, and my great thanks to the organizers of the Competition, its patrons and its President, Lilian Hochhauser. Together with all of you, I am pleased to turn still another page on the Competition's tradition, and look forward to its continued prosperity and success for many years to come.

With great esteem and friendship, I am

Sincerely yours,

Limor Livnat, M.K.
