Trio (Lamento) for Oud, Cello and Piano
2005, 12'28"
Commissioned by Wisconsin University.
The Trio was commissioned by the Cellist Uri Vardi, and funded by the University of Wisconsin in Madison.   I wrote the piece in a belated response to the murder of the Israeli Prime Minister Itzhak Rabin.   It is a continuation of my earlier works which combine the oud with Western instruments in the context of Western music. The work develops in a free associative manner and contains, side by side, written parts open to improvisation by one of the instruments on the basis of ostinato (a repetitive pattern) by the other two. In spite of the work being constructed as a mosaic which underlines the oriental influences therein, it has also melodic, harmonic, rhythmic and orchestral motivic elements which are repeated, in transformation, throughout the piece and contribute to its unity. The character of the work is mainly gloomy and lamenting. Towards the end, however, a glimmer of hope and optimism can be felt.

''Nocturne'' from suite op. 20b
2005, 4'24"
By Paul Ben-Haim.
The Nocturno Op.20B was written by the German born,Israeli Composer, Paul Ben Haim(1897-1984)as part of his Second Suite for Piano(1935-6)after immigrating to Israel-then Palestine.The Nocturno was published seperately and  it manifests clearly the change of style the composer underwent when he was looking for a new musical lsnguage to express himself in his new Middle Eastern home..Ben Haim is one of the Forefathers of Israeli Art Music and one of the founder of the Middle Eastern Movement  in Israeli Music.The piece,typical of his style,is based on a mixture of French “Impressionism”(harmonic colours) and melodic attributes such as ornamentations and improvisatory character coming from Arabic Music.It starts with the two hands playing unison  in a kind of Recitativo gesture, accompanied by chords reminding us of plucking instruments.The piece gathers momentum until its claimax and then recedes and quites down towards the end.It’s a very sensuous direct and appealing  piece,a true blending of 
East and West.
