My first violin concerto, “The Psalms of Taciturnity”, describes the inner feelings that cannot be expressed verbally, but that also cannot remain unexpressed. There is the human spirit’s pain, sorrow and fortitude in the face of this big quandry. The Psalms stand for the praise of humanity and of life. And so in this concerto, the Psalms are lacking in words, but are full of music.
