Eastern sounds with this work that combines authentic traditional
melodies and rhythms with original music. After a haunting opening,
authentic Middle Eastern percussion instruments create the groove
that accompanies the folk song Ala Dalona. As the
orchestration builds, original themes are intertwined before the
percussion ensemble becomes the focus of the third section. The final
melody, Tafta Hindi, develops until it morphs into an ostinato
over a magnificent presentation of the original theme that is found
throughout the work. A riveting ending brings this thrilling work to
a dynamic close!
