Sheet Music: Score & Part(s)
Night pieces : for oboe and piano / Matthew Hindson.
by Matthew Hindson (1999)
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
