Born: 1955, Hungary
Although mainly an autodidact, pianist Amir Frohlich studied at the Music Academy of Tel Aviv University between 1979 and 1982, taking courses in composition and conducting. He specialized in arranging and conducting vocal singing groups, but also worked as an arranger for Ofra Haza, and wrote music for theatrical performances. In 1996, Frohlich released his first solo CD, ‘Ernest – A cab driver story’, a musical fantasy about being an immigrant. Eleven years later, another album followed, aptly called ‘Chapter II’.
With composer Shaike Paikov, Amir Frohlich wrote the arrangement to the Israeli entry in the 1993 Eurovision Song Contest, held in Millstreet (Ireland). Vocal group Lahakat Shiru sang ‘Shiru’, but without much success – the entry was relegated to the second-last place on the scoreboard.
In due course, a more extensive biography of Amir Frohlich will be published on this website
