Night is a work in 2 movements, each depicting different aspects or qualities of

night. Several instruments are given solo roles to depict the many parts of a night, from

the wind, stars, moon, and the individual observing the night.

The first movement, an introduction and prelude, brings forth elements of the

overwork. These elements are later developed in the later movements.

The second movement uses the solo clarinet as a character trying to escape an

enveloping night. The dissonance and darkness seem overwhelming at points and

pushing the clamorous clarinet to its extremes.
