YMC, Composition Winners 2010
A tie for the Grand Prize has been decided for the following two compositions
 
Ariell Galler-Rabinowitz, Elegy for Strings
Elegy for Strings. For 2 Violins, Viola and Cello. Within this one movement piece, the instruments respond to each other establishing an intimate framework. There are poignant moments where they unite in sound and others where, within the melodic line, the instruments play disparate textures. The piece contains alternating fast and slow sections and is dedicated to my grandmother, a Hurricane Katrina victim.
 
Ariell Galler-Rabinowitz
Brookline, MA 02445
Buckingham Browne and Nichols School
 
 
Danielle Galler-Rabinowitz, Flute Suite (four movements)
Meditations for Flute and Piano. The piece, written in four short movements, develops the stoic idea of avoiding excess of emotion. Each movement portrays a different feeling (Maestoso, Dolce, Triste, Giocoso), while at the same time maintaining a light-hearted and airy quality throughout. The flute carries the majority of melodic lines and textures, interacting and often times harmonizing with the subtle and understated
