Clarinet and Guitar

Item Number: P2.30050

Jonathan Russell writes, "Night Dance is a brief, evocative work for flute or clarinet and guitar. It was originally conceived as one movement of a 45-minute cycle of vocal and instrumental music called "Night Songs." Composed in 2007, this cycle was built around night-themed poetry by the spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca. As a work standing on its own, Night Dance has no specific program, but its circling melodic cells, subtly shifting rhythmic grooves, and undulating harmonies evoke, for me, mysterious nocturnal creatures scurrying and dancing through an enchanted night forest.".
