E. Goldmann studied in the Rimon School Of Jazz And Contemporary Music / Tel Aviv after he learned to play the piano when he was 2 years old. His father - Aaron Goldmann - was a great Jazz saxophonist in Israel - and he wanted to continue the music approach and talent in his family by forcing Elias to play something "meaningful". Though Elias always wanted to play the drums, he did not want to get in any trouble - that's why he started his piano career quite early.
He wrote more than 500 pieces for piano, toured the whole world and it is not exaggerating to say that he is one of the most influential composers for artists like Karl-Heinz Stockhausen and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
After having suffered from stomach cancer for 2 years he passed by in November 2012 in his hometown Jerusalem. Elias was not only a great composer, but a fantastic and intellectual entertainer as well.
This 30-minutes-tape features secret and unreleased audio material and the one and only interview he was willing to give in his whole life.
We will never forget you, Elias!
