Yehezkel Braun, "...et laetitia cordis" (for solo flute, pairs of oboes, bassoons, trumpets, horns & light percussion) is my favorite, it's really soo beautiful in my opinion. He came into direct contact with Jewish and Arab folklore and music as a kid, and thus his interest in the melismatic quality of these musics led him to study the Gregorian chorale comprehensively. It's a work that speaks of the joy of the heart. Unlike Braun's modality and melody, Partos's Concertino is more modernist, however it synthesizes Western and Middle-Eastern traditions amidst it's energy giving it some "ethnic" moments, and it's a rather electric work. Sheriff's "Prayers for strings" is full of dissonant writing however the Middle-Eastern melismas are there, a careful ear will pick up on it. Holdeim's "Chaconne" is dense and highly expressive, and a perfect way to end a rare and sublime disc. Enjoy!
