Nocturne

piano / 7 minutes

Written for my good friend, Emily Grabinsky; in the spirit of Chopin and Liszt, this nocturne puts a new, slightly minimalist spin on the popular romantic form. The premiere was performed in complete darkness, which had the unexpected side effect of frightening several small children in the audience, and causing loud popping sounds as the halogen lights in the concert hall cooled.
