Overture on Hebrew Themes, Op34 conposed by Sergei Prokofieff, arranged for flute orchestra by Shaul Ben-Meir
Dedicated to Darlene Dugan and the West Michigan Flute Orchestra
Prokofieff, one of the most famous 20th century composers, composed the Overture on Hebrew Themes in 1919 while he was living in the United States. The original instrumentation is clarinet, string quartet and piano. (Some years later he reorchestrated it for the full symphony orchestra.) It captures the essence of Eastern European Yiddish music with a humorous and affectionate manner.
