Toru Takemitsu - All in Twilight

Playing Tōru Takemitsu’s All in Twilight at my recent recital in the Lamont School of Music’s Hamilton Recital Hall.

This piece was inspired by Paul Klee’s painting of the same name and explores the shades and colours present in the painting. The listener can easily immerse themselves within the sound world of the work and experience the sense of twilight that is evoked throughout.

Definitely a favourite of mine to perform!
