Osvaldo Golijov

Composer

After a decade out of the limelight, Argentine classical composer Osvaldo Golijov reappeared in 2021 with a musical interpretation of the Israeli author David Grossman’s searing novel about a father’s grief, ‘Falling Out Of Time.’ In an interview, Golijov recalled Grossman telling him at their first meeting “that he and his wife were at home one night when two messengers came to tell them the news of the death of their son [while serving in the IDF]. And as soon as they heard that, they went upstairs to wake up their younger daughter, who was 12 at the time. And the first thing she said to them was, 'But we shall live.'" Born into a Jewish family that emigrated to Argentina from Romania, Golijov now lives in the United States. (Photo: homepage)
