NEW MUSIC TUESDAY | Composer Avner Dorman's World Premiere

The Israeli composer's “Dancing with the Torah at Mount Meron" debuted at the 2020 Northshore Chamber Music Festival


The first performance was given by violinist Vadim Gluzman, cellist Mark Kosower, clarinetist Ilya Shterenberg, and pianist Angela Yoffe.

"The piece is inspired by a painting by Israeli painter Reuven Rubin - Dancing with the Torah at Mount Meron," Avner Dorman told the Violin Channel.

"The original piece I wrote was a four hand piece. I've known Vadim for many years and we've always wanted to work together so this was a great opportunity to do so! Hopefully listeners take away some joy and happiness after hearing the piece!" he added.

The performance was recorded live on September 10, 2020.
