“This specially devised programme combines a diverse selection of nocturnes with my own arrangements of American songs. The nocturne as a single-movement character piece has inspired many composers to flights of poetry and magic, while the Great American Songbook contains treasures I have adored from early childhood, which I feel fully deserve to sit alongside those works more conventionally considered part of the classical canon. By juxtaposing the nocturnes with my song arrangements, many of which also explore themes of night, I have aimed to create a continuous dream-like sequence, in which I hope unexpected resonances may be heard.” – Tom Poster
