Daniel Galay gained his reputation as a composer through the performance in many countries of his orchestral works, music for theater, ballet and chamber music. He composed music to Yiddish folktales, to poems of Perets Markish, Avrom Sutskever and Uri Tzvi Grinberg, and chamber operas to his own libretti. His Klezmer Tunes with a classical touch were performed by Giora Feidman and other leading artists over the world, like Prof. Michele Gingras (Miami University of Ohio) who released CD’s with it and Prof. Gregory Barret who arranged it for Wind Orchestra ensembles. In Duo Galay with his daughter Racheli, cellist, played in different countries presenting programs of Jewish, Contemporary and Classical music as well.
Galay was born in 1945 in Argentina and immigrated to Israel in 1965. His Master of Arts degree from the University of Chicago (1979) accomplished his musical studies and previous degrees in Piano, Theory and Composition from the National Conservatory in Buenos Aires and the Tel-Aviv University, Rubin Music Academy. Director of “Beit Frankfurt” music center in Tel-Aviv, he developed advanced methods of music education based on Improvisation.

... una raccolta di melodie per violino solo, ma arricchita dalle sigle degli accordi, per un possibile accompagnamento di pianoforte, fisarmonica, organo o tastiera elettrica ... Le molodie sono tutte trascritte con notazione tradizionale e si presentano con una struttura ben definita dal punto di vista formale; aspetto di particolare interesse musicale risiede nella loro modalità, ma anche nelle strutture fraseologiche, mai scontate. Un plauso particolare va al compositore per l’ambizione mostrata a voler tenere in vita un patrimonio musicale di considerevole valore.
