Nocturnes

First (and only) performance in Warner Concert Hall of the Oberlin Conservatory, April 25, 1988. (Caroline Coade, viola, Evan Hause, electric bass, Andrew Harold, piano, Chris Anthony, percussion)

PROGRAM NOTE

Three movements for the odd combination of Viola, Electric Bass, Piano and Percussion with a surprise appearance in the third movement of off stage piccolo, flute, and alto flute. Dream images inspired by my first northern winter. I. Snowscape – a distant snowy wood moves to the foreground and then back; II. The City Under The Sky – a shining metropolis in a remote valley viewed from a mountaintop; III. At The Riverside – babbling, ritualistic, river of life.

Instrumentation:

Viola, Electric Bass, Percussion and Piano (with 3 offstage flutes)
