Paul Ben-Haim (1897-1984) is considered one of Israel's foremost composers. His music has been performed by some of the twentieth century's greatest musicians. The author gives a detailed description of selected compositions using the La Rue system of analysis, including 'timelines,' a graphic representation of musical events as they happen. There is also a chapter dealing with performance problems of selected works and their solutions. A biographical sketch traces Ben-Haim's career from his beginnings in Munich, Germany, through his development as a professional musician.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...essential for understanding the development of Israel's classical music. * Journal Of Jewish Music and Liturgy *
...a welcome introduction...should help musicians understand the music of one of Israel's foremost composers. * American Reference Books Annual *
...a significant contribution to our knowledge of Israeli music, and in particular to the work of one of its pioneers...thoughtfully conveys the style and character of his art. -- Leo Kraft, Professor Emeritus, Aaron Copland School of Music, Queens College, CUNY
Ben-Haim is not only Israel's most prominent composer, but truly a man of international stature. I am glad to see that he is getting the scholarly attention he deserves and I think that Hadassah Guttmann's fine study does him justice. -- Robert Starer, composer
