Albert Beger

Albert Beger was born in Turkey in 1959 and immigrated to Israel as a young child. He began classical studies with Uri Taplitz, the first flute player of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Soon after he started showing an interest in Jazz. In 1985 Beger began studies at Rimon, an Israeli school of contemporary music, and started playing the tenor saxophone (which became his main instrument) and the soprano saxophone.
In 1988 he received a tuition grant from the Berklee College in Boston, where he took advanced courses in composition and studied saxophone with the legendary Joe Viola.
Since 1995 he released seven albums, collaborating with top musicians in Israel and abroad, including Harold Rubin, JC Jones, Asaf Sirkis, Gabriel Meyer, John Bostock, Haggai Fershtman, Roman Kuntzman, Hammid Drake, William Parker, and the composer Eric Shapira. Since 1991 he has been living in Moshav Dor on the Mediterranean cost. His music, which incorporates classical and ethnic traditions, is strongly influenced by his environment.
