Five Hebrew Love Songs

composer
2001
author of text

 
The Five Hebrew Love Songs are very meaningful and personal. These five songs were written about innocent, beautiful, and simple love. This was my first time writing poetry for a musical composition, and I had no idea what Eric wanted or what I would write; but with a recital pending in Germany (with our friend and superb violinist Friedemann Eichhorn) I ended up spurting them out in an hour and a half. They are mini poems, a bit like haikus, with inner rhyming, and are reminiscent of our relationship and romance. These have been a work of inspiration for me throughout the years, and I have recently continued writing poetry for my own songs that I hope to release one day.
