Levantine Symphony No. 1

This Musical composition is an ode to the Levant. Built as a hymn of sorts - both delicate and powerful, both Near Eastern and influenced by the West - it seeks to link all of the Levantine cultures in their commonalities and modern spirits.

There is a global culture which the Levant recognizes, embraces, and interacts with. And so, this contemporary symphony is rooted both in tradition - in classicism and in the values that shape its identity - and in modernity, in the popular cultures of our age that are shared by all the world's identities.

I want to thank Jamal Daniel and the New Levant Initiative for their support and contribution to this album, and for all the inspiration they offered to me as well as the opportunity to share my work.
