Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Kinah is written for pierrot ensemble, and was premiered in October 2011 by Ensemble Meitar. The title (Kinah) is the hebrew word for lamentation. Each instrument represents a family member of the deceased, in a chamber dialogue inspired by the jewish tradition of sitting Shiva, in which the immediate family of the deceased sit together for seven days while being condoled by friends and family members of the deceased.

    The piece is dedicated for the memory of my uncle, Shraga Ben-Zvi.
