This Night Of No Moon for Ensemble was composed by Bent Sørensen in 1998-99.
Programme Note: The title THIS NIGHT OF NO MOON is taken from the haiku poem by the female Japanese writer Ono No Komachi (834-880), about the emptiness without one’s beloved – the night without a moon – the night without hope.
In this piece songs and melodies are hidden - songs and melodies for this title and for other Haiku poems by the same poet.
The piece is in four movements and is commissioned Michio Nakajima Mirrk Art Forum for BIT-20. (Bent Sørensen)
