Double Concerto for Viola Violoncello and Orchestra
Ariel Zukerman 2016, 16'47"
The Double Concerto for Viola and Cello commissioned by the Deutsche Bremen Kammerphilharmonie and The Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra for the German Violist Tabea Zimmermann and the Israeli Cellist Hill Zori was written in Memoriam Maestro David Shallon . The work stresses the expressive and warm sound so typical of these two low string instruments- which have a strong affinity to the human voice. The concise piece is based on three melodies. The first two are based on a Gregorian chant and a Jewish prayer (taken from the beginning of Amida prayer) for the High Holidays- which are melodically quite close to each other in a fascinating way. The third melody is a secular Israeli "folk song" written in the forties in an attempt to create genuine folk music for the Jews coming back to their home land. The two religious melodies which are quite intense and rhetoric set the mood for most of the piece. This emotionally charged atmosphere is changed later into the more relaxing and pastoral mood of the Israeli song which takes the piece to its end. The music develops in an uninterrupted flow moving directly from the first movement to the second one by means of a joint cadenza written for the two soloists.

''Monodialogue'' a Fantasy for Cello solo
, 13'15
 
The piece was originally written for and dedicated to the Violist Tabea Zimmermann and  was adapted for Violoncello by the Cellist Hillel Zori
 
The motive core of the piece is built on the realization of Tabea's first name syllables: Ta-Be-A, which are translated musically into the German pitch names of Si-Si bemol-La (B-B flat-A). The form and shape of the work involves the examination of the interrelationships of these three pitches. As part of the motivic idea, the player is required to tune the viola's lowest string down a half step from the pitch Do (C) to the pitch Si (B). Monodialogue is a rather free piece as far as its tempi and change of moods are concerned. Its expressiveness owes a great deal of its inspiration to the unique and special character of Tabea Zimmermann.
