Jewish Culture in Copenhagen is very pleased to present Gilad Ephrat Ensemble for our Danish audience.
Gilad Ephrat, who is also a composer and a double bass player, is the visionary creator of the ensemble. Through a new approach to string ensemble performance, the four musicians take their instruments (violin, mandolin, cello, double bass) to the limits of their physical abilities, thereby unveiling the fascinating potential of strings. The unique dialogue among the instruments exchanging roles of melody and accompaniment gives birth to exciting ensemble playing that sweeps the listener into a new world of captivating sounds.
Gilad 's music is characterized by a unique style of composition that combines all different genres of music which touched his life during the years of his musical activity (classical music, jazz, world and Israeli music).
