Brener, Uri: The Prophet

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    A short symphonic poem “The Prophet” was initially written as a part of a bigger mega-cycle “Symphonic Chronicles” that encompasses more the two decades of my creative output.
    This particular piece was created as an expression of the inner elevation and wonder evoked by the famous poem of the same name by A.S. Pushkin, as well as by parts of the book “The Prophet” by Kahlil Gibran.
    A feeling of awareness of Higher Reality and awe, together with wisdom and transcendental insight embodied in these incredible literal works – all these are the foundations for the musical and spiritual core of the work.
    The use of choir is optional and is meant to impart an extra dimension to the orchestral sonority akin to its use by Debussy in his Nocturnes.
