Thea Musgrave - Night Windows: III.Nostalgia - Sarah Roper - Ignacio Torner



Thea Musgrave (b.1928) - Night Windows for oboe and piano (2008) "Walking down a darkened street it's hard to resist looking in through lighted windows and catching a glimpse of other people's lives. The imagination lingers.... Night Windows is the title of a painting by Edward Hopper of a scene in one such lighted window. However the scenes in this work - though reflecting something of loneliness in so many of the Hopper paintings - are all imaginary: highly charged emotional moments. Loneliness: Anger: Nostalgia: Despair: Frenzy" This work was commissioned by the International Double Reed Society and it is dedicated to Nicholas Daniel. Sarah Roper, oboe Ignacio Torner, piano In the background, paintings by Trinidad Fernández and José Luis Castrillo Recorded live at home on July 14, 2020 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thea Musgrave (n. 1928) - Ventanas nocturnas para oboe y piano (2008) "Al caminar por una calle oscura es difícil resistirse a mirar a través de ventanas iluminadas y vislumbrar las vidas de otras personas. La imaginación perdura ... Night Windows es el título de una pintura de Edward Hopper de una escena en una de esas ventanas iluminadas Sin embargo, las escenas en esta obra, aunque reflejan algo de soledad en muchas de las pinturas de Hopper, son imaginarias: momentos emocionales muy cargados. Soledad: Ira: Nostalgia: Desesperación: Frenesí " Este trabajo fue encargado por la International Double Reed Society y está dedicado a Nicholas Daniel. Sarah Roper, oboe Ignacio Torner, piano Al fondo, cuadros de Trinidad Fernández y José Luis Castrillo. Grabado en vivo en casa el 14 de julio de 2020
