Many Israeli musicians have informed us of the death of Dudu Sela, head of chamber music at Buchman-Mehta academy and founder of the Cello Society and several festivals. He was a hugely popular and effective teacher.
Dudu was severely wounded in the 1967 war and saved by medical miracles.
Ron Ephrat tells us that he loved his country above all. His grandfather, Zvi Nishri, was the first gymnastic teacher in Palestine, his aunt Hanna Orlov was a successful sculptor. Dudu studied with Uzi Wiezel and Leonard Rose. May his soul rest in peace.
