An episode from a documentary series produced by the Israel Film Service about musicians who won the Israel Prize.
When Yosef Tal was eight years old, his parents locked the piano in their house so he would stop playing and focus on his studies. Tal recounts breaking the lock, jokingly saying, ‘I was already a criminal then.’
Tal’s tendency to break the rules stayed with him as he became a famous composer. For instance, he was among the first to combine electronic and classical music, and in one of the interviews in the film, he recalls the vehement reactions to this.
In this film, Tal, his family, and friends summarize his career as one of the significant composers in Israeli music. Among those filmed are: Alon Sternfeld, Binyamin Hochman, Yonatan Keren, Yair Lantner, Gan Lev, Eitan Tal, Monte Yaffe, and Linda Pavelka.
