…of sorrow, joy, and dancing, for Orchestra.
I have always been particularly drawn to the Jewish folk music tradition due to its vivid expression of joy and sorrow. This piece is consequently an exploration of the sound world found in the klezmer music of Eastern Europe. The title is a reference to a verse from an Old Testament Psalm attributed to the Jewish king, David: ‘You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy’. (Psalm 30.11)
