In memory of Krzysztof Penderecki (23.11.33-29.3.20)

We were saddened by the news of the passing of Krzysztof Penderecki, one of the prominent modern composers. Penderecki visited Israel many a time, and conducted the JSO on several occasions (only last November Penderecki was scheduled to conduct a concert with the JSO in the frame of the The Jerusalem Theatre's Pianos Festival, but due to health reasons couldn't make it).

'Seven Gates of Jerusalem', by the late Polish composer, was composed by Penderecki for Jerusalem's 3,000 Anniversary, and was performed with the JSO on 9/1/97, in cooperation with the Bavarian Radio Symphony.

Here is a short news clip about the concert by Israel's Channel 1
