Dialogues is a four movement chamber work commissioned by the Ronen Chamber Ensemble with added support from the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis.  It is written for Clarinet, Violin, Piano, Bass and Percussion and is an emotional reaction to the lockout experienced by the Indianapolis Symphony in 2011.  Listen to the slow movement titled "End of an Era".
