Notes and Editorial Reviews

Born in Brichevo, in Bessarabia (then part of Romania) in 1927, Gary Bertini was taken to Palestine when still a boy, and at age 16 he began violin lessons. More than any other musician, Gary Bertini brought Israeli music-making to a standard which could readily bear international comparison. Awarded the Israel Prize in 1987, in honour of his work for music in his adoptive land, Bertini was taken ill in February, 2005, whilst in Paris, and was transferred to a medical centre just outside Tel Aviv, allowing him to die (three weeks later) in the country whose musical life he had done so much to enrich.
