The Jerusalem International Chamber Music Festival is renowned for an exceptional repertoire as well as unique meetings with first-ranking soloists who do not usually meet each other on one stage in other contexts. The Festival has achieved incredible success with concerts performed to packed halls. This programme presents the highlights of the 2008 Festival whose theme was an exploration of the “national spirit” of music.
