Description

Composer's note:  The title “of moonless nights with a last warm wind that hovers late and tender before winter’s chill,a tango for quintet, came from my reading of Rilke’s “Book of Hours,” and refers to a singing lyricism, which is at the heart of the music’s inspiration. A music that sings in phrases, periods and sections, and a musical narrative that unfolds with three different ideas interweaving. An andante (A) that moves with a strolling lilt, an expressive cantabile (B) and an almost whimsical but nuanced dance-like fast tempo (C) which leads to a punctuated and celebratory conclusion. A diagram of the interweaving ideas, A B A   C B C demonstrates how the B sections serve to unify, with their singing and developing lines, two smaller three-part structures.
