Israeli percussionist Ziv Eitan on a journey into rhythm
Israel percussionist Ziv Eitan has accepted an invitation from the Leisure and Cultural Services Department to perform in Hong Kong in a concert - "A Journey into the Rhythm".
It is a boundless musical journey that traverses diverse and powerful musical genres and styles ranging from Bach to 21st century music in a programme that encompasses romantic classical music, electronic music and world music. It includes original and innovative works specially written for Ziv Eitan by neo-Romantic composers.
The programme includes Bach¡¦s ¡§Ciaccona¡¨ from Partita No.2; Minoru Miki Marimba¡¦s ¡§Spiritual¡¨; Ronen Hoffman and Ziv Eitan¡¦s ¡§The Good People", and many more.
¡§Ziv Eitan is a virtuoso, a rhythm-genius¡¨ - Yossi Charsonsky, Maariv, Israel.
A legendary name in percussion and marimba, Ziv Eitan performs with true virtuosity. He is ably accompanied by percussionist Yonatan Givoni and cellist David Tsur. Together, they take audiences on a rich musical journey in a unique, complete and moving concert experience. The show has toured the Far East, the United States and Europe with resounding success.
