Product details

The Taste of Midnight is a piece about night sounds in an urban setting, and is highly pictorial in nature. The work begins with 12 strikes of the clock, opening the scene of a quiet town with bird-calls fading in and out. Birds feature throughout: in fact they can be heard punctuating silences and even singing along to a midnight mass, represented in the chorale tune heard in the piano in the final part of the piece. As the journey of the piece continues, the listener will hear bits of jazz floating in and out of the texture. After a clarinet soliloquy, based around frog calls, we seemingly enter a jazz club, where a midnight groove comes into conflict with bird calls - the natural wildlife seems to take over! The chorale of the final section seems to be a call for our spiritual selves to be at one with our natural environment.
