"Reflections"
Yehuda Gilad , 14'39
In my piece REFLECTION, which was commissioned by Maestro Yoel Levi for the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, one can easily recognize several dominant influences on my creative output in the last years.
On the one hand my collaborative work with my wife, the choreographer Mimi Ratz-Wiesenberg is manifested in some dance like rhythms. On the other hand my renewed encounter with the Jazz world both as former Head of Jazz and Interdisciplinary Department at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance and the presence of my younger son Noam who is a Double Bass Jazz player. Last and not least my profound love for folk songs especially Ladino Yiddish and Hebrew songs is quite prominent.
 
At the center of the piece stands a most beautiful Ladino song, taken from the Jewish community of Sarajevo, which serves as the basic melodic and rhythmic material for many parts of the piece. In the course of writing I was haunted by some old Israeli songs belonging to my generation's collective sub consciousness and echoes of these recollections more or less obvious can be detected during the course of the piece.

"Voices: Woman Man" (Video)
2007
Monodialogue a Fantasy for solo Viola is dedicated to the violist Tabea Zimmermann; the motive core of the piece is built on the realization of the letters of her first name: 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.
