''Primus Inter Pares''
2002, 11'45"
 "Primus Inter Pares" (which means in Latin –first among equals) was commissioned by the "Relache" ensemble based in Philadelphia, USA.
The piece's name alludes to the relatively prominent role of the Marimba compared to the other instruments and it was dedicated to the Israeli percussionist Chen Zimbalista. The piece is based on three Ladino songs taken out of a book called "the Cycle of Life" edited by the musicologist Dr. Shoshana Weich-Shachak. The songs serve as a "shadow" pool, which I have drawn my main melodic and rhythmic motives from, but at same time the beautiful songs themselves appear fully also in the course of the piece treated in my own harmonic language. The piece is quite rhythmical and it combines the ethnic-folkloristic element with a contemporary, art music idiom.

''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.

''Violin Concerto'' I. Moderato un poco misterioso - allegro moderato
Yaron Gottfried 2004, 10'45"
The Violin Concerto was commissioned by the Israel Symphony-Rishon Lezion Orchestra  for the Israeli Violinist Hagai Shaham, and dedicated to my late father Daniel who was a very gifted Violinist himself. My father who was self taught, played also other instruments, and felt at home in many different styles. For me he was  the personification of the Klezmer – this  real and natural musician who has only his two ears to rely on whose intuition, sensitivity and inborn talent which enable him to play wonderfully not only Jewish Folk music but every other style he chose, be it Classical Jazz or Popular Music.
