I was impressed both by the high level of your performance, then by your capability to compose freely and fluently.

Scènes d'Enfance (wind quintet, op.47, 2018)

Through scenes that describe different atmospheres and plot events, the listener goes through a
journey from elegant salons to a starry night, from stories and fairy-tales to the moments of
shudder and awe, and is exposed to different points of view on childhood. In the process, the
different movements research diverse ways and compositional means to achieve the desired
expression through sound cells, using different idiomatic qualities of the instruments, rythmical
and melodic games and inversions, strategic use of harmony and motives, ostinato lines,
cyclicality of ideas and others.

Hexagons (Piano trio, op.46, 2017)

Inspiration for the Trio came from the Hexagon Pool in the Yehudia nature reserve, in northern Israel. The Hexagon stream pours in it, and it lies in a small valley surrounded by hexagon-shaped basalt pillars, a unique geological phenomenon that greatly impressed me.

Therefore, the digit 6 is used throughout the piece in various shapes and forms.

Coimbra Lights (octet, op.44, 2016)

already composed.

score coming soon...

The piece has participated in the Dvorak composition competition in Prague, 2016

2 poèmes pour le piano (piano, op.42, 2016)

It would be interesting to see each performer’s artistic interpretation to the text. Make it increasingly dissonant, play in higher and higher registers and nonstop cresc. Each performer is having a different performance experience, much like each one’s own life cycle.

The piece has won the 2nd place in the composition competition for the Young Rubinstein piano competition.

Charge! (Orchestral fanfare, op.41, 2016)

This fanfare wishes to simulate the sound of a charging army, on its way to conquer another destination. The use of rhythmical motives in the brass and winds, as well as the low-pitched strings makes it very unique and lifelike to me. Then the dramatic entrance of the strings makes the culmination much more powerful and drives the fanfare into a spiral of tutti intermittent with intersectional dialogues that showcase each group's real power when it comes to a joint effect.

The piece has been positively mentioned in the Fanfare application process for the Kibbutzim chamber orchestra.

Water Images (sextet, op.40 2016)

The Water Images sextet was written for the Buchmann Mehta school of Music's contemporary music workshop.

 

The piece has been the my gateway for the finals of the Dvorak composition competition.

The piece has won the 2nd prize in the Alotin composition comeptition.

Impromptu (piano, op.33, 2009)

This relatively early piano piece is based on a rhythmical motive as a first theme, then through a chain of events the delicate, contrasting second theme emerges. Through a chain of events the two themes go through variations of all sorts, some more grand, some more lyrical, then the two combine before the bridge to the recapitulation.

 

I believe what really is required here is quite a bit of energy, obsession and a sense of self searching.
