Photograph 7502012
French composer-conductor, Jacques Berlinski, now settled in Melbourne (population nearly two million) sings so truly that an orchestra can tune its instruments to one of his notes. A laureate of the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique de Paris, he has composed two symphonies as well as many other works



 I knew Professor Berlinski in Los Angeles, California, where I studied music with him in the late 1960's.  He had written a monumental piece for orchestra and two choirs based on the youth of Winston Churchhill that was later performed in San Diego.  He was a wonderful teacher and I think of him often with great fondness and love.  He lived in a rented house in the Wilshire District with his Parisian wife and his  son, Thierry.  He had a Pleyel piano which I think is the same as the one in the photograph.
