 S. M. Barchan – "Crying In The Distance"

world premiere, Tel Aviv, June 2008
Dedicated to Lior Eitan

Although taking the timbral possibilities of the piccolo as a starting point, the largest inspiration to the work came from the title Crying In The Distance, which is a distorted version of the second line in the short, austere poem Dawn by Philip Larkin. The poem was published in Larkin's first collection of poems called The North Ship, marking his debut as a poet between 1943 and 1945.

To wake, and hear a cock
Out of the distance crying,
To pull the curtains back
And see the clouds flying —
How strange it is
For the heart to be loveless, and as cold as these


 S. Cohen – "My Soul Will Rejoice"

Humoristic description of us – Israelis – impatient on one hand and very nostalgic on the other.

The work was commissioned by Lior Eitan for his recital in the NFA convention in San Diego in 2005, with the support of the Yehoshua Rabinovitch foundation for the Arts, Tel Aviv.
