More than any other musician, Gary Bertini brought Israeli music-making to a standard that could readily bear international comparison. In 1987, Bertini was awarded the Israel Prize to honor his musical work in a country whose musical life he did so much to enrich. On this set, Bertini conducts the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in a live recording of Berlioz's The Damnation of Faust from 1996 coupled music from Ravel's Daphnis and ChloÃ© recorded live in 1974.
