Quintet for percussion and string quartet
2000, 14'40
The Quintet for Percussion & String Quartet is a chamber version of the Concertino for percussion & orchestra commissioned by the Israel Chamber Orchestra for the percussion artist Chen Zimbalista. Despite its origins, it has the distinct nature of a chamber work: the stirngs are equal partners throughout, the only exception being a semi-composed semi-improvised solo cadence for the percussionist.
Of the percussive instruments, the marimba is most prevalent, but various other instruments – with or without definite pitch – such as the vibraphone, cymbals and tam-tams, are also used. The Quintet, to be played as a continuous sequence, is of three sections, whose time ratios are arranged telescopically. The first is the longest and most complicated of the three, and ends with a cadence leading to the shorter expressive and lyrical second section, in which the strings come to the fore. Robust rhythmic qualities and a lively, bouncy tempo in the perpetuum mobile vain, characterize the third, even shorter, section which concludes the piece.

''Encounters I'' for Oud and Piano
2005, 11'34"
Encounters I is my first piece written for the Oud and particulary for the virtuosoOud player mr. Taiseer Elias. In this piece I’ve combined in a kind of confronting dialogue two instruments which represent typically their respective musical tradition: the noble Oud standing for the Middle – Eastern heritage and the Piano standing for the Western heritage. I’ve tried to emphasize in each instrument its typical attributes; The plucking and short notes of the Oud against the long sustain notes of the Piano using the pedal, and the linear quality of the Oud line against the chordal more densed texture of the Piano. The piece develops in a kind of free raphsodic way leaving ample of space for improvisation.
