This little piece for orchestra is an enchanting evocation of the night, featuring striking contemporary effects and percussion, including a ‘Nightingale’ whistle.

It is ideal for youth orchestras interested in trying their hand at new contemporary music, and takes advantage of the strengths and weaknesses of the typical youth orchestra.

For performance the parts and score are available for rental.
