Maestro Yinon studied at the Rubin Academy of Music and has had an illustrious conducting and recording career with many leading orchestras. His debut CD, the world-premiere recording of the symphonic works of Viktor Ullmann with the Czech Brno Philharmonic Orchestra, won the coveted German Reviewers’ Recording Prize. He conducted the concert commemorating the 50th anniversary of Yad Vashem at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, and in 2009 conducted the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in a concert marking the anniversary of the birthday of Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy whose music was banned by the Nazis.
