The Music of Inon Zur

On November 20, 2022 at 7:00 PM, the LAJS spent a night reveling in the works of award-winning Israeli-American composer Inon Zur that transported us to other-worldly places. Enjoy an image gallery featuring Inon Zur, soloist Emily Bear, and the LAJS.

The LA Jewish Symphony traveled through Inon Zur’s video game scores, including the World Premiere performance of the Suite from Syberia: The World Before, featuring Grammy and Emmy Award-winning pianist Emily Bear. It tells the story of a young pianist in 1937, whose music offers hope amid the growing threat of fascism in Europe. Zur joined as a special guest to perform the Fallout Medley Suite on piano.

With his more than 50 emotional and soul-stirring video game scores, Zur takes inspiration from Beethoven, Stravinsky, and Gershwin when creating the music for games played by millions of fans around the world. Zur’s music takes center stage in this special event, which also featured concert suites of Zur’s work in the Dragon Age series, The Elder Scrolls: Blades, and the game Starfield.
