Bio

&rdquoRaveh conducted by heart, clearly and persuasively, like he had the scores in his eyes pupils, like he was the music itself. Watching him and his connection with the orchestra was a great experience.” Praised by the critique as “frankly speaking – a musical genius” after his debut concert in November 2011 with the Szczecin Symphony Orchestra, conductor Gil Raveh is an acclaimed musician who is internationally recognized for its unique approach to musical performance. In September 2012 Raveh was appointed artistic director of the Norddeutsches Philharmonisches Akkordeon Orchester, a unique orchestra consisting some of the world’s best players, which focuses on musical performance in the highest standards. In 2013 Raveh was honored to accept the invitation to be the assistant of the great Maestro Michail Jurowski. The young conductor will assist Mr. Jurowski starting the 2013/14 season with his concerts with Europe’s most important orchestras and cities, such as Staatskapelle Dresden as part of the “4th Shostakovitch Tage” in Ghorisch, and in the Semperoper, St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Dresdner Philharmoniker, Tonkünstler Orchester Vienna, Zürich Opera, State Academy Symphony Orchestra “Evegeny Svetlanov” Moscow, Bolshoi Theater Moscow, The Royal Danish Orchestra and more. In September 2013, less than a year since his appointment as its Musical Director, Raveh led his orchestra to its greatest achievement with its debut concert outside of Germany, after accepting an invitation from the highly acclaimed International Bruknerfest in Linz, Austria. The concert took place in front of hundreds listeners who were  enchanted by the orchestras magnificent sound, presenting very demanding pieces by Bach, Mozart, Bruckner and Stockhausen. This event took place in the festival’s main hall, Brucknerhaus – Linz, sharing the same stage with the greatest European orchestras like the Wiener Philharmoniker, Münchner Philharmoniker, London Philharmonic, Staatskapelle Dresden and more. Raveh’s performance won a praising review in the papers. This culminating event marked the orchestra as one of the best orchestras of its kind in Europe. In December 2012 Raveh conducted the world premiere of Markus Stockhausen’s “Ein Glasperlenspiel” – a concerto for Trumpet, Harp and accordion orchestra – in ”Beethovensaal” in Hannover. The piece was specially commissioned and composed for Raveh’s NPAO. This performance received a superb reviews, and was published two month later on a commercial CD. In August 2012 Raveh founded IMB (International Masterclasses Berlin) where he is the artistic and managing director. IMB is a group of motivated and exciting professional musicians who is interested in changing the way orchestral music is studied, taught and performed. During 2013 IMB organized international masterclasses for conductors, cooperating with the Berlin Sinfonietta, and some of the  most important conductors and musical pedagogues such as Prof. Kenneth Kiesler (USA) Prof. Lutz Köhler (UdK Berlin) and Maestro Michail Jurowski. Right after completing his academic studies Raveh was appointed to be the assistant of the musical director, Maestro Noam Sheriff, in two well-known orchestras in Israel, the Israel Chamber Orchestra and the Haifa Symphony Orchestra.
