For String Quartet.
When I was asked to write a new piece for the Jerusalem Quartet, I wanted it to be uniquely Israeli. Mirage is characteristic of both our physical land as well as of our history and heritage. Throughout the piece, themes are introduced and developed, but instead of reaching a satisfying culmination they evaporate or fade away as we get closer to them. The work is in three movements, Mirage, Prayer for the Innocents, and Ruchot. — Avner Dorman
