Ex Tenebris Lux ('Light out of Darkness') is a musical evocation of the dawn light appearing gradually out of the darkness over the wide open landscapes of western New South Wales. The music builds from mysterious and nebulous beginnings, continuing through various musical sections that create an increasingly noble sense of grandeur, finally culminating in a climax that represents the full effects of the bright sunlight on the landscape itself.
Instrumentation: 2 flutes (1st doubling piccolo), 2 oboes (2nd doubling cor anglais), 2 clarinets in B flat, 2 bassoons, 4 horns in F, 2 trumpets in B flat, timpani, percussion (2 players), strings.
Duration: 15 min.
- Inspired by: Landscape and Nature
