Remarks: Solemn Night Music is a one-movement meditation, a metaphor for the way in which thoughts and the associated emotions evolve and develop, as themes and motifs grow from smaler cells, changing their form and character along the way. The music, which absorbs the musical styles of the early 20th century, presents related ideas which are constantly varied and almost never repeated literally, so that we hear the same things in ever new forms, - as if we are pondering ideas and looking at them from continually changing angles.

‘Solemn Night Music’ is a one-movement meditation, a metaphor of how thoughts and related emotions evolve and develop, as themes and motives grow from smaller cells, changing their form and character on the way. There is a pattern of order and intelligence in our emotions, as there is an emotional component to our thoughts, and music is the best way of demonstrating the combination of these different elements into one single experience. The title is taken from a poem by the German poet Hermann Hesse, where the author reflects upon the human condition, and upon his own life with its strivings, tribulations but also fulfilment, which can all be seen reflected in the various manifestations of nature.
