An episode from a documentary series produced by the Israel Film Service about musicians who won the Israel Prize.
Abel Ehrlich composed over 3000 pieces throughout his life. “He was a very diligent worker,” testifies his son, Danny. Yet, diligence and dedication didn’t make Ehrlich a humorless person. A good example is “A Letter to the Municipality,” his creation for tenor, saxophone, and flute, where the lyrics are an official response from the Tel Aviv municipality regarding his complaint about garbage not being cleared near his house.
In this film, Ehrlich’s students and family members recount his life experiences, his musical career, and his captivating personality. Among the interviewees are Yehudit Ehrlich Fisher, Galila Reubner, and Yuval Shaked. The film also includes interviews with Ehrlich himself, filmed in 1971 for the movie “Ranges of Sound” (directed by Yigal Bursztyn; written by Dan Orstav).
