Albert Beger

Born in Turkey in 1959 and raised in Israel, Albert Beger's musical sensibilities were informed from a young age by the vast cultural melting pot that surrounded him. The deeply diverse and eclectic range of sounds he heard offered a rich musical landscape upon which to draw continuing inspiration - a colorful palette of melody, harmony and rhythm that would impact his future direction as a composer and improviser.

Albert's eclectic tastes are evident in his own compositions. Listening to his energetic, soulful pieces one hears a confluence of styles. A “World Music” that the term “world music” simply doesn't do justice to - bebop, hard bop and free jazz, contemporary classical and ethnic music, progressive rock and electronica - delivered in an indefinable style that is pure Albert Beger. And of course there's that sound: free of border or limitations…a spark reaching beyond to grasp the fire of the Divine …a fearless, joyful noise that embraces experimentalism and tradition, and lyricism and frenzy, with equal passion, love and respect.

Albert has spent years wood-shedding his instrument, a reflection of his penchant for self-discipline and auto-didactic study and an uncanny love for the saxophone and its seemingly endless aural possibilities. His formal education consists of a BA earned in Composition and Performance from the Berklee College of Music in Boston and a Masters in Music from the Rubin Academy of Music and Dance in Jerusalem. He currently holds teaching positions at the Rubin Academy and Haifa University and heads the Instrument and Performance Department at Muzik - School of Creation and Production in Tel Aviv.
