November Nocturnes

November Nocturnes

for violoncello solo and orchestra


  • Instrumentation: cello and orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
Description
Less than two years after the premiere of Never give up, Fazıl Say has composed a new work for solo cello and orchestra. The composer focuses on the theme of night from different perspectives in the five movements of November Nocturnes (Endless Night Nocturne, Solitude Nocturne, Nightwalk Nocturne, Imagery Nocturne and Blue Nocturne). Say provides extensive opportunity for solo cadenzas in his composition: the second and fourth movements are scored exclusively for the solo cello apart from brief introductions and epilogues (into which an out-of-tune offstage piano is also integrated).
