Conductor Ensembles Composers

Notes & Reviews:

A word employed by such diverse composers as Mozart, Chopin, Shostakovich, and Fine, "nocturne" first applied to 18th-century ensemble pieces in several movements; in the Romantic era, the nocturne evolved to its more familiar form, a single-movement work for piano. Here the term is used to evoke night, though not always in theme. Four pieces on this CD were commissioned by the ensemble in 2001, and were intended to commend the celestial company of sun, moon, and stars - Asplin's Of a turning wheel; Skirvin's ... stars to hold; Mäntyjärvi's Kosijat and Eric Banks' Celestial Wystan.
