Night Airs (for flute, clarinet, piano, violin, cello and percussion) (2014)
Night Airs is from a series of pieces inspired by the natural world and explores imagery of the night. The piece opens with a stillness that explores different timbral combinations to create unusual tone colours. This stillness is disturbed by energetic bursts of colour that act as pre-echoes to the more melodically and rhythmically agile faster section. The faster section continues to combine the instrumental voices in interesting ways and particularly shows off the agility of the flute and clarinet in duet passages. Dovetailing cascades return the music to the stillness of the opening of the piece as the night draws to a close.
