Programme Note:
“Nightsong” is an evocation of a secretive, nocturnal solitude. Curiosity, loneliness and conflict alternate with times of more peaceful contemplation and introversion. To me, both the bassoon and the harp are associated with night. This may seem obvious when considering the plaintive voice of the bassoon, but the delicate rustling of the harp is also evocative of quiet, mysterious, crepuscular sounds.
