The concert, called Voice of Israel – Now and Then will see Talmon collaborate with local cellist Ku Mei-yu to present Max Bruch's Kol Nidrei. He’ll also be conducting the Moment Musical Youth Orchestra in performances of Jewish composer Marc Lavri's Emek, as well as Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Pathetique. Emek depicts Israel’s spirit and landscape through music.
Talmon hopes to introduce new, young and talented musicians. The 47-year-old composer is seen as a unique musician because of his unusual career path. Talmon was actually a businessman before taking on music as a career.
