Avner Dorman: Karsilama - Set Of 2 Playing Scores

Books | Piano Duet

Publisher: G. Schirmer
Composer: Avner Dorman
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

For two Pianos. The Turkish word 'Karsilama' refers to a popular couple’s folk dance in 9/8 meter. Originally, the word 'Karsilama' meant 'face-to-face greeting.' Avner Dorman thought it would be appropriate to write a couple’s dance for two pianists, since a Piano duo plays facing each other.

The piece is structured as a set of variations. Each presents a different way to dance the 9/8 rhythm, as well as a different way two people might greet each other face-to-face. The Palestinian and Israeli piano-duo Duo Amal gave the premiere of Karsilama in Hamburg, Germany, in 2012, and performs the piece around the world.
