Program Notes:

In Arabesque, I was exploring and developing few tangled motives which echoes imaginary shepherd songs and interwoven Middle-Eastern melodies played typically on the local Nay Flute. With characteristic Baroque instrumentation, I tried to give the medium a different, more contemporary yet ethnic view. Arabesque was generously commissioned in memory of Adele and John Gray for the Tel Aviv Baroque Trio: Drora Bruck, recorders; Orit Messer, cello and Marina Minkin, harpsichord.
