Near the end of his career, Erik Satiewrote five pieces for piano designated as nocturnes.Contrary to most of his oeuvre, these were serious works lacking the satire,wit, and non-conformity Satie usually exhibited. Still, they are unmistakably Satie: soothing,floating, and very French. This work is a straightforward arrangement ofSatie’s 4th nocturne, applying the color and dynamic ranges of theorchestra to his piano writing. It maintains the enchanting dance-likecharacter of the original work while the musical lines move among and betweenthe instrument families to exploit the variety of orchestral timbres. 4thNOCTURNE is suited for the concert hall among a program of impressionist orFrench music, an exploration of lesser known works, or wherever a charming andbrief movement would be fitting.

Instrumentation: 2d1,1+1,2+1,2    2,2(Bb or C),3,1    Glock/Chimes, Perc     Strings
