The work “My Father’s Death” is a neo-baroque lamentation based on the words of the poetess Pnina Avni.
In dealing with such an emotional text as in “My Father’s Death” the composition reflects the theatrical aspect, when the use of the text by the soprano singer is nothing more than repressed speech, a silent cry of emotion.
Then follows a sobbing lamentation, expressed specifically with no words in the melodic lines, accompanied with a bass-lamento by the piano.
