Piano score, solo part
Hatikvah (The Hope) is a 19th-century Jewish poem and modern-day national anthem of Israel. In this romantic-style arrangement, Ben Andrew shares the melody between both the violin and piano.
Through the use of subtle dissonance and a rich harmonic texture, the music conveys a sense of struggle, despair and sadness, as well as the eternal hope expressed in the original poem upon which the music is based.
