Shmuel Malkin

Born in Israel in 1934, Shmuel Malkin studied composition and piano playing with Paul Ben-Haim in private lessons. Later on he decided to dedicate his professional life to science and studied chemistry at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, where he got a Ph.D degree in 1963. After a period of a post-doctoral work abroad, he returned to become a permanent member of the Weizmann Institute research staff and got a Professorship. Among his scientific achievement is the probing of photosynthesis by the photoacoustic method, in which sound waves are generated from a sample irradiated by pulsed or modulated light. In parallel to his scientific activities he was still active in writing music, but only after his retirement (2003) did he decide to do it on a professional basis.
His list of compositions includes 4 songs for soprano and piano (words: Fikhmann, Tshernikhovsky, Elisheva, Goldberg); songs for women choir (words: Tshernikhovsky); 4 inventions for piano; sonatina for flute and piano; trio for clarinet, viola and piano; trio for flute, viola and harp; vocal work for 6 voices; 3 songs (words: Ofer Lider); 2 songs (words: Agi Mish'ol); concert pieces for saxophone quartet; sextet for flute, clarinet, bassoon, violin, violoncello and piano; dialogue for clarinet and piano.
Malkin passed away on March 2017.
