Piano Concerto No. 7 (2nd Edition), published by Classical Video Concepts, Inc. was inspired by the 50th Wedding Anniversary of my dear friends, Judith and Murray Siegel. The first movement has a vibrant spirit that reflects the dynamic life of these two people. The second movement is lyrical and tells about the passion of love and the strength that makes a great marriage. The third movement is based on a motif from an old Jewish song that the composer's grandfather, David used to sing during family gatherings. The movement has a strong influence of harmonic colors, and engaging rhythms found in klezmer and Hassidic music.
