New Solo Violin Work


Michael was commissioned to write a piece for solo violin to be premiered on December 15th in San Francisco at a commemoration of the 1937 Nanking Massacre. The piece, “Lament for Solo Violin: Nanking 1937” is an elegy and gesture of sympathy for those impacted by this dark period during World War Two. The piece will be performed by violinist Joseph Maile.

  1. Dare I say it? It’s an old and hackneyed phsrae, but it still rings true.”The first casualty of war is always the truth”Fortunately in these days of political spin doctors and wartime propaganda, we still have THE source of eternal truth: Jesus Christ, Messiah, Son of God, Lord of Lords and King of Kings; the Alpha and the Omega. He is the one who spoke and the universe leapt into existence. He is the one who created mankind in His own image:Genesis 1: 26 Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; …To those who doubt that Messiah was the creator of the world and mankind; who is Us?John 1:1-4 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.The darkness in the world today is becoming daily more intense.I would encourage anyone who is tired of living in darkness to examine closely the scriptures; both old and new testaments. A serious study will reveal that they go hand-in-hand. The new is the fulfillment of the old. And if you wish to understand our present times, everything you need to know is written plainly for all to read.Thank you Yaakov.
