Score & Part

Nocturne : for violin and piano / Wendy Hiscocks.

Library shelf no. 787.2/HIS 2 [Not for loan]

Work Overview

The Nocturne was originally conceived as a contrasting companion piece for a livelier and more complex work called The Flame. Both works are inspired by the writings of Rabindranath Tagore and the listener will discern the influence of classical Indian raga from time to time. The Nocturne though, is substantial enough to be performed alone.
Its structure mirrors the layout of Tagore's poem with its repeated refrain Bird, O my bird, listen to me, do not close your wings corresponding with a repeated musical refrain creating a loose rondo-like form.
