The duet “Oasis” for clarinet (Bb) and piano is based on different Maqamat and combines ethnic and classic fragrance.
It contains instructions for improvisation (for the piano part) as it is used in the Mediterranean traditional music.
The work aims to describe the air of the desert, the arid freedom and its infinity as opposed to the joyful oasis full of life.
