Some concerts are important simply as occasions: The Joint Concert--Tel Aviv was a celebration of reconciliation, a performance shared by the Berlin Philharmonic and the Israel Philharmonic that would have been inconceivable a few years earlier. Zubin Mehta takes a massive band consisting of both orchestras through performances of Ben Haim's fascinating Psalm, Ravel's La Valse and Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. The Ravel is particularly impressive--a work that can often slip into feyness or the too overtly sinister--here has a depth of complexity to its sound that saves it from either, and the sheer volume of the harps in a couple of passages gives the performance an interesting and individual strangeness. The Beethoven is monumental in its scale--rarely has the transition between the "Scherzo" and the "Finale" sounded so like Forster's goblins walking across the universe. Young and promising soloists--Viviane Hagner (violin) and Sharon Kam (clarinet)--play the Saint-Saens Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso with the Israel Philharmonic and the Weber Concertino with the Berlin Philharmonic; we grow so rapidly used to the sound of the orchestras playing together that their individual sounds strike us as almost delicate.On the DVD: The DVD has menus in English, French, German and Spanish and is presented in 4:3 screen ratio with PCM stereo sound, relegating a description of the importance of the event to the booklet. --Roz Kaveney

Advantages: Location, Locatin, Location! Disadvantages: None really - see text
...I had to attend a conference in Tel Aviv, Israel. The conference was in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, so it made sense to stay there!
In Israel the currency is the New Israeli Shekel, which in this review will be called NIS. When I changed my money at Heathrow, the exchange rate was 7.79 NIS to the £. Some of the cost was in US $ so the exchange rate that was on my credit card statement was $1...
Advantages: not on the tourist route Disadvantages: pretty façade, partly ugly backyard
...and the hotels and four days later we were on the plane.
We aren?t pious and didn?t intend to go on a pilgrimage and tick off all the holy sites Israel has to offer, we decided to stay in Tel Aviv (where the international airport is) for two days to shake off winterly Germany and then to go on to Jerusalem for six days. Tel Aviv gave us what we had been looking for and more than was necessary to make us...

Review of Tel-Aviv (Israel)
Advantages: Friendly people, superb food, sun! Disadvantages: Risks of bombings
...I have visited Tel-Aviv on business on a number of occasions. Often I spend time at the Sheraton Moriah hotel due to preferential rates our company gets through the Israeli Export institute. I advise if you are travelling to Tel-Aviv on business that you make enquiries.
The currency in Israel is the New Israeli Shekel (NIS). The exchange rate at the time of writing this review is 8.2 NIS to £1...
