Atar Trio Premieres To the Bird From a Distant Land

06/02/2023 @ 12:00 pm

The Atar Chamber Ensemble  directed by pianist Ofer Shelley, will premiere To the Bird from the Distant Land at Studio Annette in Tel Aviv on June 2 at 12:00 p.m. in Tel Aviv. The inspiration for this trio came from Bialik’s iconic poem To the Bird, written when the poet was just 19. The bird from the distant land represents his ideal, the land of Zion, far from the darker reality in which he lives. The bird forms the bridge between the narrator’s home in the harsher world of Europe, to the Aretz Israel, though neither location is mentioned by name. While the narrator nonetheless wonders whether some of the difficulties of his current situation are to be found there as well, the dream of this land, and the hope for a peaceful, welcoming existence there are central in his extended poem.
