Light…at times, it only shimmers. Like a warm ray peeking through the forest trees, it shimmers. But it’s there. As the golden sun rises, all of its warmth and piercing rays overtake the cold and dark of the forest making visible the dark places and providing energy for life to thrive.
Candle in the Night is an intermediate piece for solo piano. Composed in simple ternary form (A-B-A), the piece explores the expressive power of open intervals and ostinato.
The beautiful and flowing minor melody poetically points to a single lit candle as a shimmering ray of hope in the dark night.
