Relating to readers the history of Israel, the changes it has undergone until the day statehood was declared in 1948. But, not everyone in the world has accepted his beautiful land, the people and their traditions.

As Tingley candidly asserts: she "sometimes doesn't understand him; I cannot see where he is coming from or going to. My head is bursting in an effort to comprehend what he is telling me. My brain is strained to the limit and everything I ask him annoys him because I am way off the track and everything I suggest is driving him further away and further into introversion."
Daniel Kossov was born to Jewish parents, Isaac Kossov and Natalia Epstein in 1977 in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, a former Soviet Republic that borders Afghanistan. His parents were very well-respected musicians. At the age of 2 he emigrated with his parents and paternal grandparents to Israel. At 10 he was the concertmaster of the Jerusalem Youth Orchestra where he was often seen conducting and leading string sections as well as frequently performing as soloist with orchestras in Israel and abroad.
His brilliance and genius did not go unnoticed and by the age of 17 he entered the Curtis Institute of Music where he won the Concertmaster audition. It is here where he studied with the renowned pianist, music theorist and pedagogue Edward Aldwell. After graduating from Curtis, he was awarded a full scholarship to another esteemed learning institution, the Guildhall School in London, where he was immediately asked to lead the orchestra.
In 2001 at the age of 24, Daniel arrived in Perth, Australia and amazingly became the youngest ever Concertmaster of the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.Read more ›
