Sivan Eldar - "Once Loved"
"Once Loved", for two voices and accordion, is a miniature of simultaneous love narratives. The three bodies - the two singers and the accordionist - occupy a triangle of yearning, always emoting towards the other. The words, standing for the difficulty of semantic expression, are sparse, yet they provide momentary glimpses of internal worlds. They find their echo, sometimes lyrical, sometimes speech-like, in the hollowed, unencumbered body of the accordion.
