Gilead Mishory about his piano piece "An die ferne Schwester":

“A lullaby can also be a gentle funeral march. And vice versa…

This piece, which encircles the gentle funeral march from Beethoven’s “Diabelli Variations” , is a greeting from and to my childhood, and to my little sister, whose life was hardly two months long. I often ask myself, where she’s floating… Thoughts about her have been accompanying me for almost fifty years now. Is she, then, not so distant after all?”

„Ein Wiegenlied kann auch ein sanfter Trauermarsch sein. Und umgekehrt…

Dieses Stück, das um den sanften Trauermarsch aus Beethovens „Diabelli Variationen“ kreist, ist ein Gruß von und an meine weite kindliche Vergangenheit, und an meine kleine Schwester, die kaum zwei Monate lang leben durfte. Oft frage ich mich, wo sie schwebt… Die Gedanken an sie begleiten mich seit fast fünfzig Jahren. Ist sie, also, doch nicht so fern?“
