Luminescent Night Clouds are a summertime phenomenon here in Finland, where you sometimes can see clouds that seem to glow with their own inner radiance in the warm and light summer night.
In this composition, the melismatic appoggiaturas create a sense on meditation, while the at times chromatic melodies bring movement and serve as balance. It’s important to play two beats to a bar; if the tempo is too slow, it will start to feel like six beats in a bar, and then it starts to drag.
