Letter of Commendation from Maestro Professor Dalia Atlas (2010)

Maestro Professor Dalia Atlas

My warm appreciation and thanks to the creators of the Ernest Bloch, and Israeli composition competition: To Lilian Hochhauser - President of the Competitions, Sagi  Hartov – Founder and Chairman of the Competitions, The Bloch Society of  the Jewish Music Institute (JMI), as well as to all staff who devoted their time and energy to establish the Israeli Music Competition and Ernest Bloch Music Competition into a universal acknowledgment of the richness of Jewish and Israeli music.

Ernest Bloch (1889-1959) was an authentic Jewish genius composer. His music influenced the world's and Israel's composers, whose music developed during the years under his influence into their own styles, flourishing as a new generation of promise, talent and vision.

 

Bloch was an explorer, searching many languages in music. He created his own interpretation for each style that he was attracted to. He left behind a huge repertoire of masterpieces which was unfortunately neglected after his death, apart from his few well known Jewish works which continued to be played.

Now it is right that his neglected music is returning to the concert halls, challenging performers to find the correct interpretations for his various styles. I hope there will be a lot of winners, with or without prizes, to benefit from the performance and positive experience of Bloch's music.

It is tremendously satisfying to witness in Israel, as well as in the Competitions, the revelation of Israel's young generation of many fine, talented composers and of performers from all over the world who are aiming for the highest standards of excellence, aiming to be the best. The annual Israeli Music Competition and Ernest Bloch Music Competition held in London represent a wonderful step forward; an opportunity to reach new heights in music performance and also in enriching the experience of the audience.
