Repertoire Note

This piece was a tribute to Elena’s mother who worked as an eye doctor in Buchara in Uzbekistan, where, because it was so dry and sandy, many of the local inhabitants suffered from eye problems. Young opthalmologists were sent to work there and Elena remembered her mother’s descriptions and stories about the place and its people, and wrote this exotic sounding piece based on those memories.
