Yehezkel Braun (Hebrew: יחזקאל בראון, born Breslau, Germany, January 18, 1922) is an Israeli composer.
From the age of two, Braun was brought up in Mandate Palestine in close contact with Jewish and East-Mediterranean traditional music. The influence of this background is clearly evident in his compositions.
Braun is a graduate of the Israel Academy of Music and holds a Master's degree in Classical Studies from Tel Aviv University.
In 1975, Braun studied Gregorian chant with Dom Jean Claire at the Benedictine monastery of Solesmes in France. His main academic interests are traditional Jewish melodies and Gregorian chants. He lectured on these and other subjects at universities and congresses in England, France, the United States and Germany. Yehezkel Braun is Professor Emeritus at Tel Aviv University.
In 2001, Braun was awarded the Israel Prize, for music.
