Description:

WHY (?) JACOB, in its original version, is for chorus (SSAATTBB) and piano. The present adaptation for piano alone uses very few new materials; only a few measures at various points of transition and at the conclusion are added. The shape and emotive content of the piece remain the same. The composition is an elegy, written in memoriam for a childhood friend, killed in the October 1973 Arab-Israeli War. Its mood is clearly nostalgic in its effortless alternation between a hazy chromaticism of star-like images, and a simple statement of a folk-like tune. The interpretation of WHY (?) JACOB should be quite free, as if it were part of the romantic piano literature
  • Tempos given are approximate.  They suggest the character the music is to take, and nothing more.
  • Rubato should be employed freely. Particularly in nontonal sections, there should be almost no sense of "time," and certainly not of "beat."
  • Use of the damper pedal, as indicated should be almost continuous throughout (again particularly in nontonal sections). The effect should be hazy and cloudy. The performer should use discretion to achieve this effect, keeping in mind the harmonic/phrase implications, and of course the resonance of the instrument and hall.
  • Chords may be arpeggiated (in tonal sections) at the performer's discretion.
