Moshe Wilensky, one of the Hebrew song's most salient and influential figures, and a pioneer of popular Israeli symphonic music, composed music for hundreds of songs whose lyrics were written by some of Israel's greatest poets and songwriters. He wrote for the theater and stage, for military bands, pop groups as well as the most prominent singers in the country.
Wilensky's compositional works spanned generations, evolving alongside developing and emerging musical styles, in a career that lasted over sixty years. His compositions have become an inseparable part of Israel's collective soundtrack.
