Piano Sonata No. 2 "Abraham Dwelt"
composer: Mikel Bell
The Biblical persona of Abraham is one of the most important historical figures, being the patriarch of the three major world religions, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. The four movement titles of this work are geographical locations where "Abraham Dwelt": 1. Ur of the Chaldees 2. The Terebinths of Mamre 3. Mount Moriah 4. The Cave of Machpelah. Musically diverse, challenging, yet satisfying.
