Tehilim 'Psalms'

author of text

Sometimes the universe delivers it’s sweetness and things simply fall into your lap. Aharon Harlap is a dear and admired colleague from Israel and I have sung his compositions in the past, but these Tehilim (Psalms) came to me out of the blue, exactly at the time when I was searching for such a work. They are written for clarinet, piano and voice and are based on three Psalms from the Bible. They carry a sense of majestic celebration and a triumphant atmosphere. There’s an incredibly dramatic element in the music, as well as Aharon’s awesome flair for combining Middle Eastern traditions with Western classical music.
