Born in Israel, Uri Rom studied conducting in Tel Aviv and Berlin, where he also received a diploma in music theory. In 2011, he completed his Ph.D. degree summa cum laude at the Humanities Faculty of Berlin’s Technical University, writing on the compositional significance of key choice in Mozart’s music. His compositions in original and historical styles and completion of fragments by Mozart have been published, and recently his oboe concerto in the style of the Venetian Baroque was recorded for harmonia mundi. He regularly presents at international conferences (including EUROMAC 2011 and 2014, and the 2011 SMT annual meeting), also pursuing activities as a composer and pianist. His research interests encompass Formenlehre and corpus studies on musical form, structure and expression in Mozart’s music, and chromatic harmony/enharmonicism. Since October 2011, he teaches as an assistant professor for music theory at The Buchmann-Mehta School of Music at Tel Aviv University.
