Programme Notes
Night Song arr. violin, ‘cello and piano (1995) This work is an arrangement of the central part of Love 200 (1970), for rock band and orchestra. It acts as a nocturne-like slow movement, the only part of the work in which the rock band is silent. In this arrangement, the solo violin follows the original vocal line, which is concerned with solitary thoughts at night, while becalmed on a distant sea. Set in a straightforward, strophic manner, the four verses of the original are followed by an extended coda. Peter Sculthorpe
