• The piece was commissioned by the Israeli Chamber Project in 2010. When approaching the task of writing a piece for the unusual instrumentation of clarinet, cello and harp, I have been influenced by a mixture of different musical styles that, in my mind, relate to these instruments: folk music, Jewish klezmer, impressionism and rock (after all, it is a known fact the cello originated from the electric guitar). As it often happens, the result is somewhat different than the original plan, but some elements from these genres have still found their way to the final version. The trio is loosely constructed out of three movements that are played in a row and offer different versions of similar themes, while each instrument aims to pull the musical style at its own direction. Toward the end of the piece, there is a triumphant moment at which all instruments showcase their individual variations simultaneously. Thus, they celebrate their difference in tone between the instruments as well as their blend together.The trio has been performed by multiple ensembles around the US and in Israel, most notably by the Israeli Chamber Project, in venues including The Morgan Library & Museum (New York), Ottawa Chamberfest 2012 (Canada), University of California (UCLA), South Orange Performing Arts Center (NJ), Einav Center for Culture (Tel-Aviv), and the Tenri Culture Institute of New York (scheduled December 2013). In 2013 the piece won the International Composition Competition of the American Harp Society in Dallas.
