  • William Y. Elias


(b Odessa, Aug 3, 1940; d Los Angeles, June 7, 2006). Israeli composer of Ukrainian birth. He studied at the Odessa Conservatory (1958–65) with Starkowa (piano) and Kogan (composition) and at the Gnesin Institute (1968–71) where he completed the doctorate. In 1973 he moved to Israel, where he was appointed to a post at Tel-Aviv University. Though the works he wrote in the USSR were influenced by early 20th-century Russian music and by Hindemith, in Israel he turned to graphic notation and to specifically Jewish subjects.
