Programme Notes
Nicholas Maw Night Thoughts The title of this piece does not denote poetic fantasy à la Edmund Wilson – both the initial and subsequent ideas came to me during the night. The piece is intended as a compendium of those wayward and wilful ideas that either slip through, or lodge themselves in the mind during the small hours. Nicholas Maw
