Program notes:
Light Paths for symphony orchestra portrays light through sound. Now and again the light will travel fast, as car lights on a highway, sometimes it will travel slowly, like a dim spot coming from a distant ship. The intensity of light can range from a flickering candlelight to an intense bright beam that temporarily blinds the eyes. It can be direct or non-direct, it can flicker, shimmer, dim, increase, expand, focus… It can be masked by a cloud or fog, then reappear in a different form or intensity. It can wear different colors – white, blue, yellowish beam, reddish beam… from different materials – fire, electricity, gas…

The first and third movements explore the fast and more direct light sources, while the middle movement explores the mysterious aspect of a distant-nearby light.

Light Paths was commissioned by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra through the generous support of the Israel Ministry for Culture and Sport, “Kol Kore 2016.”
