“Sudfa” (Chance) by Dina Shilleh (2016)

This movement is part of the composition As I Tell It that comprises six movements, each characterized by a special combination of the instruments voice, clarinet, viola, and piano; four of these movements followed by a poem by poet Tariq Hamdan. The work revolves around the idea that meaning is formed by pure chance that results from the passage of time, exposing us to disappointment and pain and leaving us with contradictory and at times incomprehensible feelings. The first movement, titled "Coincidence," was arranged by Dina for a flute and piano duo and is performed here by Ali Habil on flute and Hoor Deriyah on piano.
