NIGHT MUSIC

NIGHT MUSIC score: page 1

Program Note

NIGHT MUSIC is bookended by an atmospheric tune designed to evoke the stillness and mystery of the night. In between is a lilting dance which evokes the youthful excitement of childhood when we were allowed to stay up past our bedtimes, especially when parents were not around. Many influences mixed while composing this piece including my memories of night time as a child, more recent memories of Maine woods at night, and the mysterious, mystical moods evoked in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks--though not the "murdery" parts.

NIGHT MUSIC is the second movement from THREE MOVEMENTS FOR PIANO but may also be performed separately as an individual piece.
