Download “Next Year” Score

Written in 2011 for Daniel Bolshoy, five movements, ca. 9 minutes.

“The piece is rich with tasty contrasts of rhythm and harmony, making for a set that will likely become popular program fare in a short time.”–Classical Guitar Canada

Daniel grew up in Israel, as did I, and I wanted to write music that reflects this connection. So I took the Old City as inspiration and tried to capture its elemental, strange, and unsettled essence. I enjoyed writing this piece, but I remember feeling strangely compelled to really strip things to the bone. Any kind of decorative flourish that didn’t serve a specific purpose ended up on the cutting room floor.
