Gary Bertini (b1927)

Gary Bertini was born in Bessarabia (now Moldavia) in 1927. As a child he was transported to Palestine, where he started to learn the violin. After World War II he studied at the Milan Conservatory from 1946, graduating in 1948; at the Tel Aviv College of Music, graduating in 1951; and, most formatively, at the Paris Conservatoire and École Normale de Musique. In Paris he studied composition with Honegger, Messiaen, Chailley and Nadia Boulanger, as well as musicology at the Sorbonne, completing his studies in 1954. He then returned to Israel and taught conducting at the Music Teachers’ College in Tel Aviv.

In 1955 he was appointed conductor of the new Rinat Choir, which later became the Israel Chamber Choir, and made his debut as an orchestral conductor with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, later touring with the orchestra to America and the Far East. In 1964 he became the musical adviser to the Batsheva Dance Company, an appointment which reflected his activity as a composer for the theatre (he wrote the incidental music for over forty productions by the Israel National Theatre and the Cameri Theatre). Between 1965 and 1975 he founded and conducted the Israel Chamber Ensemble, which functioned as both an orchestra and an opera group, and with which Bertini appeared extensively throughout both Europe and the USA.
