Cain And Abel: Grand-chamber opera in five scenes

  Listen to CD | View Booklet  
Haifa-born Tsippi Fleischer has been composing for more than 30 years and has gained an international following for her compositions.
The biblical story is presented in a way that emphasis universally held emotions…


The vocal writing in Cain and Abel, like that in a Mozart opera, mirrors the drama…
The soul of Abel's lamb sings a beautiful aria…
The fourth scene, in which Cain murders Abel, employs the most rhythmic variety and is the musical and dramatic climax of the work. It provides a vibrant contrast to the preceding and following scenes.
There is much poignancy in the last scene, and it offers the greatest variety of vocal techniques and sounds.
