Concerto Da Camera - La Folia for Four Wind Instruments (fl, ob, bn, hn) & String Orchestra
Andrew Lawrence-King , 18'43
Commissioned by "The Israel Camerata-Jerusalem"
Written while being a fellow at the VCCA Virginia USA.   
  
 The Israel Camerata-Jerusalem Orchestra conducted by Andrew Lawrence-King
The work, which was commissioned by the Israel Camerata Jeruslaem and written while a fellow in VCCA, Virginia, USA, derives its inspiration from the traditional melodic – harmonic – rhythmic pattern called “La Folia” which served as a framework for dozen of works written since the Renaissance to the present day. The name’s origin relates to the fact that, at first it served as pattern for music and dance in which the dancers became ecstatic, and seemingly struck by madness.
In my treatment of this traditional form, I tried to derive my ideas from its typical melodic structure, its basic rhythmic character and its dance-like origin as well as form the obsessive, everlasting repetition of the basic pattern while making changes and variations, in my own language. 
The Work consists of four movements: Fast-slow-fast-slow, with the first three almost connected and the fourth independent.
This last movement is in the form of a funeral march in which I tried to express my feelings and pain in regard to the collapse of the process and the loss we are experiencing in the present era.

''Entrapped Bird''
1998, 9'56"
This song cycle written in 1998 for Voice.Vln.Ob.(or Cl.)and Pno. is based on three poems by the late Israeli  Poet Ya’ir Hurwitz .I used only three of the 18 short poems, all relating to death.This was his last book and he wrote these songs on his death bed.The entrapped bird is a metaphor of his soul being imprisoned in his sick body, waiting, in a sense, to be freed. I’ve tried to portray this dark and very painful atmosphere in my music using a chromatic and expressive musical language.
