The Musical Bible is a collection of three piano solos and one clarinet solo. It draws freely from traditions of Schubert, Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky, yet falls outside the traditions established by these composers. It includes a variety of historical, stylistic, and cultural influences. All components of this music such as the melodies, the different rhythmic patterns, and the rich dynamics serve one important purpose to discover the historic wisdom and harmony of the Bible.
Two things make this music to stand out: its beautiful, original and memorable melodies; and precise, logical, very skillful and, at the same time, emotional use of dramatic motif and melodic developments.
The music guides the listener through Biblical stories. In "The Story of Life of Jesus Christ" the melody of Jesus changes its character five times, touching on his special birth, life and struggle, persecution, crucifixion, and resurrection. "The Story of David and Goliath" vividly shows their battle and the little boy''s victory over the giant Philistine warrior. The epic "Story of Moses" brings to musical life the escape of the Hebrews from Egyptian bondage. The charming clarinet performance of "The Creation of the World" recalls Debussy in making the listener to believe the world is being created before him.
Even if the Bible is far from your mind, you will still enjoy the unforgettable beauty of these four masterpieces. The composer-performer was truly inspired while creating this unique music. It will make you feel like you have never felt before. You will not believe it unless you will actually hear it.
