Israel Phil mourns veteran bassoon
December 7, 2016 by norman lebrecht
Walter Meroz, bassoonist of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra from 1951 to 1995 and teacher of three player generations, died last week at the age of 83.
A man of gentle ways, Walter served for many years and with immense tact as the orchestra’s disciplinary officer.
His most famous solo was in a deathless pop song, Arik Einstein’s Atur Mitzchech.
