Bryan Medwed (1957-2002)

Brianpiano.jpgBryan was a composer, classically trained at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, who left his formal musical studies in order to immigrate to Israel and become a kibbutznik and farmer (living first on Kibbutz Grofit and then on Kibbutz Samar). Later, he also became a designer and promoter of solar and wind energy systems, the “pioneer” in the Arava region of what was then a very new and challenging technology. In 2002 he was killed in a car accident on the way to delivering wind turbines to a Bedouin village in the Negev. Though Bryan spent much of his time concentrating on farming and ecology, he never gave up his musical efforts and over the years, continued to play the dulcimer (his primary instrument) and composed numerous songs, classical music pieces, and one symphony.: “Symphony in Three Movements."
From October 28th until November 3rd the Lüdinghausen Youth Orchestra of Germany and the Red Sea Music Center of Eilat cooperated together on a music week. Hans Wolfgang Schneider, the director of the German youth orchestra, and Leonid Rozenberg, the director of the Red sea Music center worked together on a musical program that was performed in Eilat at the end of the week. The program include a partial rendition of Symphony in Three Movements.
