Uri B. Rom - CV
Uri Rom studied conducting and music theory in Tel Aviv and Berlin, and historical performance in Basel. In 2011 he earned his PhD in musicology at the Humanities Faculty of Berlin’s Technical University summa cum laude, writing on the compositional significance of key choice in Mozart’s works. His original compositions were performed and published in Germany and Israel, as also were completions of fragments by Mozart (e.g., the Horn Concerto Movement in E major K. 494a); his oboe concerto in the style of the Venetian Baroque was recorded for harmonia mundi. His research interests encompass musical corpus studies, structure and expression in Mozart’s music, as well as advanced chromatic harmony and enharmonicism. Between 1998 and 2009 he taught orchestral conducting at the Berlin University of the Arts. Since October 2011 he teaches music theory at the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music, Tel Aviv University, where he also heads a research group on musical corpus studies funded by the Israeli Science Foundation.
