Quick Overview

Shulamit Ran's delicately tinted chamber work Birkat Haderekh...glowed with a sense of gentle but firm supplication, its title rendered from the Hebrew as 'Blessing for the Road.'
-- Jeremy Eichler, The Boston Globe.

...Birkat a wandering meditation on melody written for the Quartet for the End of Time ensemble: clarinet, violin, cello, piano. Cast in a single movement less than 10 minutes long, the work develops and deepens ideas introduced in a wistful opening clarinet line. Mostly introspective and direct in its appeal...
-- Brian Schuth, The Boston Musical Intelligencer
