NocturneCharles J. Torian, Jr - Hummingbird Music Publishers, LLC
This romantic work lends itself to creative interpretation on the part of both soloist and accompanist. It has a singing, pastoral quality that feels almost like a spiritual. The piano often becomes the solo voice in what is perhaps more aptly described as a collaboration. Multiple meter and key changes blend into an almost impressionistic veil of unrushed expression. The solo is equally suitable for flute or oboe.
