• Cecile Licad (piano)

• This anthology of nocturnes and related works for solo piano attempts to tell the story of their encounters with Night. This collection begins and ends with movements from Eine kleine Mitternachtmusik by George Crumb. Whilst the work’s title is a punning reference to Mozart’s celebrated serenade, the recurrent nocturnal theme that unites its movements is also inspired by the Jazz musician Thelonius Monk’s Round Midnight.
