Eliahu Inbal

Eliahu Inbal (born February 16, 1936, Jerusalem) is an Israeli conductor.

Inbal studied violin at the Israeli Academy of Music and took composition lessons with Paul Ben-Haim. Upon hearing him there, Leonard Bernstein endorsed a scholarship for Inbal to study conducting at the Conservatoire de Paris, and he also took courses with Sergiu Celibidache and Franco Ferrara in Hilversum, Netherlands. At Novara, he won first prize at the 1963 Guido Cantelli conducting competition.

Inbal made most of his early appearances in Italy, but a successful British debut in 1965 with the London Philharmonic led to a number of other engagements with British orchestras. He subsequently worked with a number of orchestras throughout Europe and in America, and eventually took joint British citizenship.

From 1974 to 1990, he was the principal conductor of the hr-Sinfonieorchester in Frankfurt. With them, he was the first to record the original versions of several of Anton Bruckner's symphonies, for which he won the "Jahrespreis der deutschen Schallplatten-Kritik". He also recorded a complete cycle of the symphonies of Gustav Mahler and Shostakovich. From 1984 to 1989, he was chief conductor at La Fenice in Venice. He was appointed music director of La Fenice in January, 2007.

He is scheduled to assume to post of principal conductor of the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra from 2008 to 2011. In February 2008, the Czech Philharmonic announced the appointment of Inbal as its next chief conductor, effective with the 2009-2010 season.

Inbal has conducted a wide variety of works. He is best known for his interpretations of late-Romantic works, but is also noted as an opera conductor, and has given the premieres of a number of modern works.
