Amit Friedman Received The Prime Minister’s Award for Jazz Composers

Amit Friedman received the Prime Minister’s Award for Composers in the field of jazz 2021:

“Amit Friedman’s work is well anchored in the classical tradition of jazz on the one hand and brings a contemporary statement that combines Israeli and Mediterranean elements, and sometimes also influences from the music of the Renaissance period, especially in its harmonic aspects, on the other.

Amit is educated to combine complex rhythms and intelligent and sophisticated development of the melodic lines in his work into a challenging and imaginative statement that addresses both intellect and emotion. All this is done in a natural and integral way, among other things, thanks to the quality and virtuoso performance of him and his players.”
