Biography

Itay Talgam received his Artist Diploma in conducting from the Jerusalem Rubin Academy and studied General Philosophy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, winning his degree “Cum Laude”. Itay sees himself as a disciple of his great teacher, Leonard Bernstein. His international conducting debut took place in 1987, when he was chosen and presented by Maestro Bernstein in a special concert, conducting the Orchestre de Paris, Bernstein himself conducting the second half of the same concert. Since that highly successful performance, Talgam conducted many orchestras in Europe, being the first Israeli conductor to perform with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra and the Leipzig Opera house. He also conducted and recorded with all of Israel’s major orchestras, including the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.
