Composer's Notes

Nachtstück was written as a showpiece for the brilliant young hornist Ben Goldscheider.

I imagined this night not as a time of tranquility and reflection but one of darkness and foreboding with a nervous energy that could break out into moments of optimism or even despair. The title also alludes to the volatile Nachtstücke that you might find by Henze, Schumann or Schubert.

Mark Simpson, 2021
