Dawn of Evening

Music of Sally Greenaway

This solo piano piece is a quiet, broody vignette - depicting night music similar to a Nocturne. It has been influenced by the beauty of classical music as well as Irish folk music. The pianist is encouraged to sculpt the work in their own way by adding their own inflexions and ornamentation in a quasi improvisatory fashion.

The world premiere performance of this piece was by ARIA Award winning pianist Sally Whitwell in October 2012.
