MK Limor Livnat

Greetings from the Minister of Culture and Sport of the State of Israel
Limor Livnat, MK
to the 2nd International Israeli Music Competition
Final Competition at The Royal College of Music, 16 July 2009

As Minister of Culture of the State of Israeli, I am honoured to congratulate the 2nd International Israeli Music Competition, a unique and original enterprise now in its second successful year.

In this competition, held in London [...] 70 gifted musicians, from 20 countries, performed the classical compositions of Israel's finest composers - a dream come true for any Israeli Minister of Culture and, indeed, every Israeli.

Over the three months of the competition, audiences all over England have enjoyed a wide range of Israeli classical music which, with its combinations of Eastern and Western motifs, bridges cultural gaps and unites the hearts of music lovers everywhere.

Israel has no better ambassadors than its creative artists and, in particular, its excellent composers. These talented individuals present a lovely facet of our country to the world, through a repertory of superb musical works they have given our young state in only 61 years.

[...]

Our special thanks for their great dedication go to the competition's President, Lilian Hochhauser, and to its generous patrons and honoured judges.

We proudly salute our distinguished composer, Mr. Yehezkel Braun, winner of the 2001 Israel Prize, the Guest of Honour at the finals.

From Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, we send our best wishes for success to all the participants in the competition.

Shalom.

MK Limor Livnat

Minister of Culture and Sport
