Bar-nian was born in Isrs il
in 1930 and started his trainii g
in Haifa. He soon won a schoh .•
ship for study in the United States.
This musical study was inter-
rupted when he returned to his
native land where he joined the
Israeli army during the War of
Independence. Later he com
pleted his studies and graduated
from the Juilllard School and the
Mannes College of Music.
Mr. Bar-Illan has been en
gaged for a 20-concert tour with
the San Antonio Symphony for

wide recital hour.
Bar-Illan’s interpretations of
the great classics of the re
pertory have marked him as
“a poet of the keyboard” (New
York Post), however, he is equal
ly at home in the modern Idiom.
He has introduced many works
by his Israeli countrymen, such
as Ben-Halm, whose Suite will
be performed here Friday night.
