for orchestra and saxophone quartet
Enosh clearly demonstrates Mátti Kovler's undeniable gift for melody, an anomaly these days.
Mikhail Parhamovsky Virtuosi
The opportunity to write for the Metropole Orchestra in Holland, a unique orchestra that combined full symphony force with a big band, has led to the composition of Enosh. I wrote the piece in the beginning of my military service in Israel, shortly before the eruption of Second Intifada. The overture consists of themes to the imagined musical theatre work based on Sabbatai Zvi, a recurring messianic character who fascinated me for the past two decades. The central, lyrical theme, carried by the Alto Saxophone in this version, is the love theme of Sarah, Sabbatai's bride.
