Piano Music by Israeli Composers
Following the great successes of his recently released Czerny CDs, Kolja
Lessing now dedicates himself to a most highly interesting new project in
his capacity as a pianist. He interprets piano music by modern Israeli
composers such as Joachim Stutschewsky, Sergiu Natra, Mordecai Seter, and
Tzvi Avni. The last-mentioned composer has repeatedly turned to the piano,
and his rich oeuvre for this instrument reflects all the changes that he
has lived through as well as the diverse personal, artistic, and political
experience that he has gathered during the course of his compositional
career, which now spans seven decades. Against this background the two
piano compositions by Avni from the most recent years, the In Spite of All
That: Sonata brevis (2014) and the Dedication composed in 2016 for the
hundredth anniversary of the birth of his teacher Mordecai Seter, assume
the character of autobiographical statements. Reflection on the thousands
of years of the Jewish song tradition and the effort to develop a national
identity marked the genesis of music in the new state of Israel, which
achieved its independence in 1948, having formerly been the British
mandated territory of Palestine. The development of an Israeli music world
in the sense of European institutionalization was first made possible by
exile and the unbroken pioneering spirit of many outstanding musical
personalities in the 1930s. No other land of exile encouraged occupation
with Jewish traditions like Palestine / Israel from the 1930s to 1950s;
independently of individual positions regarding religion and Zionism, here
the question concerning Israeli identity – concerning the creation of a new
Israeli music on the basis of many different influences and primarily those
emanating from Eastern European Jews – was explored.
