Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Hatikva means hope and is the title of the Israeli national anthem. The Israelis call it, self-ironically, the "Moldau", because the first four bars are reminiscent of Smetana's famous D minor theme. I have melted down the substance of the anthem to form a melodic, hamonic concentrate that renders the atmosphere of the song in four bars and forms the passacaglia bass of the whole work. The solo clarinet is engrossed in its own excessive expression of joy and sorrow, outcry and tragedy while the yearning melodies of "Hatikva" are buried, time and again, beneath the orchestral sounds, recalling the great sufferings of the Israeli people." - Franz Hummel
