The Wings Of Night for Trombone and String Quartet was composed by Bent Sørensen in 1998, as a commission from the Warsaw Autumn for Christian Lindberg and the Silesian String Quartet.
Programme note: I do not yet know what to write about this short piece which I have just finished. But like my Piano Concerto LA NOTTE, it seems to take place at night-time - or perhaps it is only because I wrote the piece by night. In short, the title is from Shakespeare’s ’Romeo and Juliet’.Juliet sings to the night - the night of love: ’Come, night; come Romeo; come, thou day in night; For thou wilt lie upon the wings of nightWhither than new snow upon a raven’s back.THE WINGS OF NIGHT was composed as a commission from the Warsaw Autumn for Christian Lindberg and the Silesian String Quartet.
