Silver Moon

Yukiko Nishimura (composer)
Violin 1, Violin 2, Violin 3 (Viola T.C.), Viola, ...


At night you see the moon up in the sky silver and shining. The radiance is both beautiful and tranquil. Although in triple time, the evocative Silver Moon almost feels as though it's in duple time with the combination of a half note and a quarter note. The third beat should be lighter, like Baroque dance music. Prioritizing the feeling of the piece will give it a more natural and smooth sound. The work consists of three sections. The first and the third have the main theme with a repeated pattern of harmonic progressions. During the second part, each melody sings more like a dialogue. The optional piano part adds to the special quality of the song.
