Clear Midnight (by Michael Burritt)

Price: $49.00

Product Information

Clear Midnight was commissioned by and dedicated to the fabulous Escape X Percussion Duo. The work is essentially two movements in one. The first part functioning much like an introduction or prologue, and the second, a 3 part movement unto itself. The piece is intended to be a “tour de force” for these two dynamic performers showcasing their versatile skills and impassioned musical voice.

The title Clear Midnight is a reference to a Walt Whitman poem titled “A Clear Midnight”. The poem resonates with one of my most cherished times of day and the hour I tend to set much of my creative work in motion.
