OLIVERO Betty
BETTY OLIVERO was born in Tel Aviv, Israel. She studied at the Rubin Academy of Music, at Tel Aviv University and Bar-Ilan University with Itzhak Sadai and Leon Shidlowsky, and at Yale University where her teachers included Jacob Druckman, Bernard Rands and Gilbert Amy. In 1982 a Leonard BernsteinScholarship enabled her to work at Tanglewood with Luciano Berio, whom she continued to study with in Italy (1983-86). Olivero's innovative music speaks the language of contemporary compositional form, yet is inspired by the antique Jewish and other early musical traditions. Folk material appears in rich, nuanced arrangements, or is blended through avant-garde transformations into textures featuring dense heterophony, rhythmic complexity and rich orchestration. Her style is coherent and non-eclectic, yet combines elements as diverse as Judeo-Spanish (sephardic) music, Arab tunes and medieval music, integrated into a contemporary musical language. Olivero's compositions have been performed by leading orchestras and chamber groups such as the Chicago SO, the New York PO, the Israel PO, the BBC SO, the London Sonfonietta, the Juilliard Ensemble and the Arditti Quartet, and at many major European festivals. Olivero was awarded the Fromm Award by the Fromm Music Foundation (USA, 1986), the Koussevitzky Award by the Koussevitzky Music Foundation (USA, 2000), the Prime Minister Prize (Israel, 2001), the Rosenblum Award for the Performing Arts (Israel, 2003), the Landau Award for the Performing Arts (Israel, 2004) and the ACUM Prize for Life Achievements (Israel, 2004). Olivero is a lecturer in composition in the Music Department of Bar-Ilan University, Israel. Olivero was recently nominated as composer-in-residence for the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra.
