Musical style:           The musical language  of Dov Carmel is bilateral: on the                                        one hand, his choral music is influenced  by the                                                      professed israeli-mediterranean style and the music of                                        Bartok and  Kodaly.

                                     On the other hand, his instrumental works  reflect                                                 compositional trends, techniques and devices common                                        in the second half of the last century.
