Moonless night : song cycle for solo soprano and orchestra / Lorenzo Alvaro.
by Lorenzo Alvaro (2015)
Moonless Night is based on the famous radio play Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas. The text used in this composition comes from the introduction of Under Milk Wood, where the narrator (which in this case is the solo soprano) describes and opens us up to the world of the imaginary Welsh town of Llareggub.
