Welcome to the music of composer Stephen Horenstein.  A world rich with surprises, resources and unexpected turns.

The “work” ranges from solo works, ensemble, small orchestra, electronics and environmental installations.

Latest additions include a commission by Festival de Chaillol (France) for the Tel Aviv Wind Ensemble (Quintet No. 2 [Portals]-World Premiere) and a collaboration with French artist Pascal Colrat (music for a journey of images). Pleine Lune100 Rêveries  Illustrées  published by Riveneuve Editions, Paris).

Good news.  I am currently writing daily at The Times of Israel (TOI).  You can find me at:
