From the Press:
" A work by Ayal Adler, Misterioso ("mystery") for piano shows a space between the vague and concrete. Colorful world, quiet but frantic. Often emerges from a quick phrase, a very Israeli shade, yet never vulgar, nor breaking the mystery. In Adler's work, and the work of Nono, Messiaen's spirit lies".
Hagai Averbuch on: "Piano Plus"- Amit Dolberg's recital, February 2013. In: "Music 4AWhile, online Magazine
"The work is based partly on the modal patterns of traditional Armenian music and those embedded within the modern harmonious environment, with the presence of background tunic emerge and disappear again. At times the piano resembles antique oriental string instruments - and highlighted its most essential feature being "Fianoforta" and its ability to provide conflicts of light and shadow".
