Work Overview

The two Night Pieces were written as contrasting movements.

The first movement, "Night Song" contains a lyrical quality, and in particular there is a sense of nostalgic poignancy that is intended.

As the title suggests, the second movement, "Night Dance" is inspired by dance music, in particular some forms of middle-eastern music. It uses quarter-tones as a decorative device: these being the notes found 'in between' the notes of the piano.

— Matthew Hindson
