About Shaul Bustan, an AICF alumni:
“Bustan’s music moves and pulls the heart, at times bursting with longing whilst then reassembling itself anew in an european-elegant way. Its harmonies suddenly change from a campfire in the desert to Johann Sebastian Bach in the Thomaskirche – and back again. What is so impressive is with what ease the distances and differences are overcome, with what ease Bustans tunes unite what supposedly do not fit together.” Jüdische Allgemeine
Born in 1983 in a small kibbuz in the Negev desert, the Israeli composer, conductor and multi-instrumentalist Shaul Bustan started playing classical music on the mandolin from a very young age. His musical language are the unique sounds and combinations of orient and occident.
He won the Chana Avni-Yaddor’s Composition Competition (2007-2008), the 2005/6 Deborah Grossman Award for Excellence in Music Education, with “Das Letzte Kleinod” the ‘Theaterpreis des Bundes 2015’ and ‘Hermann-Allmers-Preis’, and was awarded scholarships from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation (2002-08) and the Berlin Senate in the JAZZ composition section (2017).
