This is my first composition after a 10-year hiatus as a composer. My last major work was based on the life of the biblical King Solomon. This new work is a sequel to that work, based on Solomon's wisdom. Koheleth is the Hebrew name of the book of Ecclesiastes. This suite is in 5 movements, each serving as a musical depiction of the wisdom taught by Solomon. Vanity is depicted as urgent, fleeting, and short-lived. Wind is represented by sul ponticello, harmonics (bowed and plucked). People's humdrum life is represented by a minimalist sounding four-chord progression with fear and turbulence randomly interspersed. V'ahavta is a traditional Jewish chant, calling Yahweh's people to love Him. The finale is the instrumental version of my setting of Psalm 139.
