''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.

Metamorphosis I - for piano solo
2007, 6'53"
Metamorphosis I was commissioned by the young and wonderful Pianist Benjy Hochman. It was conceived as a short (app. 6') self contained movement that could also be intergrated later as part of a longer piece yet to be written.
 
It develops out of a very small melodic and rhythmic cell that undergoes multiple phases changing its mood, texture, contour, rhythm and tempo.
From a nervous beginning, restless and inquiet, it becomes more and more energetic until its motoric impetus stops and the whole atmosphere changes and transforms to become static, colorful and melodic.
This mood lasts for a while but not for too long, when once again it changes to become charged with energy, reminiscent of the opening character.
 
The piece has a zipping quality, changing ideas quite fast, expressing in a way the uncertain and unstable situation so typical of our hyper tensioned life in Israel, our native land.
