List of compositions (2005-2016)

 

My compositions divided into two groups (A and B) which present different approaches that are associated with the different proficiency levels of the performers.

Group A compositions have been composed for performers with a Western classical musical background who do not necessarily have experience in the performance of classical Arabic music and Arabic-influenced Jewish music. Group B compositions have been composed for performers who have

proficiency in the performance of Arabic genres as well as experience in improvisation of other genres (i.e., jazz and Jewish styles).
