Created a new version of a playlist on Spotify. Night Music is a collection of music that reminds me of Bartok’s idea of Night Music.
As of 6/3/20 I’ve edited it and added and subtracted to and from it.
Night music is a musical style of the Hungarian composer Béla Bartók which he used mostly in slow movements of multi-movement ensemble or orchestra compositions in his mature period.
As with many musical styles, it is not possible to make a satisfying let alone indisputable definition of Night music. Bartók did not say or explain much about this style, but he approved of the term and used it himself. Most of the works in Night music style do not carry a title. From an audience point of view “‘Night Music’ consists of those works or passages which convey to the listener the sounds of nature at night”.
In a way, this music was early ambient music. This playlist is an extension of that. It draws on music from a pretty wide range of styles and composers.
Hope you enjoy it.
