You are invited to a recital and a talk with

Taiseer Elias

The Oud & Violin virtuoso

Presented by
UK friends of The Abraham Fund Initiatives
in collaboration with the Goodenough College Middle East Club

Taiseer Elias
A master of both Eastern and Western music, oud and violin artist
Taiseer Elias performs worldwide. He is founder/ conductor of the first
Orchestra of classical Arabic Music in Israel, and currently the
musical director and conductor of the Arab-Jewish orchestra of the JMAD
& the Music center in Jerusalem.

Elias has recorded with a number of ensembles including
White Bird, Bustan Abraham, Ziryab Trio (of which he is the musical
director), Menachem Wiesenberg & Tabea Zimmermann (“The Malta
Concert” -Classics Live) and others. He has also composed music for
theater and films.

“Like a modern Paganini, Elias’s playing was fast,
furious, and techically superb. Anyone who doubts the merits of Arabic
classical music will find his or her argument difficult to sustain, in
the light of this man’s brilliance.” Mohammad Hijazi, Bill Board.

The performance is in support of UK friends of the Abraham Fund
