Written in Berlin in the early summer of 2013 as a gift for a friend on his departure and return to his homeland of Israel. An impassioned melody flows freely and sweetly. I wanted to principally explore the dark lower register of the instrument, as well as the special sound quality found high on each string. Long questioning phrases hang in the air, yet a sense of closure is finally reached.
