TIME AND THE HOUR is a compilation of chamber works by composer Ayala Asherov that have been commissioned and performed in the last few years.
“While going over the pieces and compiling them, I have realized that time and its passing has always been a big part of my composition process. It seems as though I am always aware of it and drowned in it when choosing the subjects to create musical compositions and express my emotions.
One can not enjoy music without experiencing the passing of time. It never stays still, therefore music will always take us forward. I am grateful to the wonderful performers that are taking part in this album and are making my music that much clearer, that much more intense, powerful, and communicative. I am a great believer in the power of music, its power to heal and bring us all closer together.”
