Born in 1975 Israeli-American composer Avner Dorman has quickly risen to become one of Israel's most successful and renowned composers. At the age of 25, he became the youngest composer to win Israel's prestigious Prime Minister's Award.

In 2001, Dorman received the ACUM prize from the Israeli performing rights society for his Ellef Symphony. Ma'ariv, the second largest newspaper in Israel, named Dorman "Composer of the Year" for 2002, and the performance of his song cycle Boaz received the Israeli Cultural Ministry Prize for best performance of Israeli music the same year. Dorman's Variations Without a Theme, premiered by Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic in November 2003, won the 2004 Best Composition of the Year award from ACUM.

Programme Notes / Performance Details :

What determines the special character of a piece of music written for percussion instruments is the very choice of sets of instruments. The possibilities are infinite. The variety and richness of possible combinations allow the composer to embark on special creative journeys.

In Udacrep Akubrad, I have chosen a similar set of percussion instruments for each of the players: a marimba, two Darbuka, and a tom-tom. This piece draws its inspiration from the music of our region, extending the Eastern boundaries as far as the Indian sub-continent.

The main source materials in this piece are scales and the rhythms emanating from the traditional classical music of the peoples of the Mediterranean on the one hand, and on the other: a repetitive minimalism, prevailing also in the music tradition of the Middle East, but in this piece depending on a technique that has been developed during the last thirty years.
