Work Overview

The work is an authentic expression of new music which incorporates a wide spectrum of contemporary and ancient styles. It creates a unique confluence of Jewish musical styles and prayers with Arabic music, western music and jazz vernacular.

The work's five movements comprise images, textures of colors, and fascinating fusions of cultures and styles that ebb and flow between precise execution and free-flowing, boundary-traversing playing, oscillating between the silent prayer of the Kabbalist and the joy of the Palestinian bride, between the rhythms of Belly dances at an Imaginary Cult ceremony and a baroque style ballroom setting, and between A Song from the land of Israel and somber multitonality.

The structure of the composition may be likened to that of a film or play, with scenes or acts represented by the parts of each movement, while the characters are the subjects and the motifs. The ambiance, which sometimes changes dramatically, engenders tension and mystery. And, just like in a movie or a play, here too the full import can only be appreciated and understood by uninterrupted listening to the entire work.
