"Yoel Ben–Simhon’s music is
not only highly accomplished, fascinating, and compelling,
but also evocative of extra–musical images and ideas,
and therefore perfectly suited to the cinematic medium. He
is also a very congenial person of great integrity who will
contribute a positive human dimension to any program."
"Yoel is a well established composer. His
capability to compose in many musical styles, but maintain
his strong originality is very impressing. Yoel has the artistic
touch of a performer, combined with vast musical education.
He also possessed strong dramatic understanding and the know
how when it comes to working with picture. Yoel's musical
achievements with his band, and the musical scores for the
films he composed is exceptional."

"Yoel has created an art–work of
genuine aesthetic achievement, a synthesis of art and ritual,
and a work which transcends and integrates cultural distinctions.
The liveliness, commitment, and accomplishment of his music
testify to its life as a vital composer. His compositions
show such a considerable breadth of artistic imagination,
variety, and balance. On the CD he produced for the Ladino
group ‘Sarah Aroeste’, Yoel demonstrated great
talent for orchestration, harmony and tone color."
