Written for Anna Levy and Jane Hayes, founders of the Yarilo Contemporary Music Society, in memory of Nikolai Korndorf on the fifth anniversary of his death. Revised in the summer of 2022, when he would have turned 75, coinciding with the release of the Yarilo Contemporary Music Society’s The Smile of Maud Lewis.
Half-light is the soft, subdued light seen at dusk or at dawn.
When I wrote this music, I was in a sad state, thinking that Nikolai’s music and memory were gradually fading. In my mind, this picture portrayed the light at dusk, gradually fading. But with the release of The Smile of Maud Lewis, – a CD full of music by Nikolai Korndorf, and my piece in memory of him, I believe his music and memory are being reborn in a new dawn.

Exuberant, life affirming, and heart wrenching all at the same time. What a magnificent piece of music, performed with genius, generosity, and love. If only Julius Eastman, who I am so grateful to discover, could hear it. davidskeist
