First performed on 11 April 2015 at Specs On! in Berlin by Maria St. Radaeur Plank.

Programme Notes

Beyond was 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 principally to 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.
