The Winds of Time

The Winds of Time

Hauntingly beautiful, The Winds of Time is a powerful piece juxtaposing Middle Eastern and Western musical styles.

As wind whistling a memory of love, so The Winds of Time opens to the sound of two beautiful neys or flutes in duet. With a text reminiscent of Rumi, and yet, so unique for our time, this dynamic piece portrays both the struggles of life and the beauty of the Divine. Using the opening material, the music shifts first from a Middle Eastern melody and chant to a Western hymn and finally returns to the opening melodic duet performed now by the entire orchestra or piano and instrumental obbligato.
