Piano Concerto in C (2020)
CD/Published Music Score
The Piano Concerto in C is actually a serial, twelve-tone piece. However the series were elaborated to emphasize a "gravity" center around C and creating "flavors" of major, minor and modal settings.

Remaining movements use variants of this tone-row. Those variants emphasize diminished/augmented fourths and fifths and minor/major third intervals.

ORRAZ ("Light and Mystery") Symphonic Poem (Symphony N.2)
CD/Published Music Score
The symphony is inspired by the work of Yehudah Halevi  (1075/86 - 1141) Spanish Jewish physician, poet and philosopher. Specifically the Ayin Nedivah (“Generous Eye”) a Qasida For Solomon Ibn Ghiyyat; as well as the Gematria relationship between the Hebrew letters making for “or” (light) and “raz” (secret – mystery).

The numerical values of Hebrew letters is well known from time immemorial. Adding these numbers in a word or a phrase and looking for similarities in other words is known as Gematria. The Hebrew words OR  (light) and RAZ (secret, mystery) share the same numerical values (207) ob-tained by adding the numbers corresponding to their letters.

New composition: Concerto for Theremin and orchestra: The Royal Crown (Keter Malkhut)

The concerto for Theremin and orchestra, The Royal Crown (Keter Malkhut) is inspired by the series of poems by Solomon ibn Gabirol, an 11th-century Andalusian poet and Jewish philosopher with a Neo-Platonic tendency.

The work does not follow specifically any poem  or “programme” but it is strongly reflective of the poet's mystical, Kabbalistic and introspective style.

New composition: Sixteen Short Sonatas For The Solo Piano (2020)

The Sixteen Short Sonatas for the piano is a series of relatively terse pieces for the solo piano. The écriture is often more straightforward than in my lengthier projects.

The title Sonata is employed here in the Baroque sense of the word. One indivisible musical texture which is not dualistic as with the classical sonata neither programmatic as with the romantic sense of the form.
