Synopsis:
Shortly after the birth of his youngest daughter, Marc Lavry wrote, four short pieces that capture the personality and character of each member of his family: Wife (Helena — Mother), and three children (Efrat, Dan and Varda.)
The composition was first performed by Lavry at the Piano and a violinist colleague at a family gathering at their home. After each movement he quizzed the family to identify who the subject was; it was a no-brainer and they got all answers correctly.

The composition includes four movements:

  • Moderato – Efrat
  • Marcia – Dani
  • Adagio (Lullaby) – Ima (Mother)
  • Vivace – Varda
