A Moon That Lights Itself

Commissioned by National Galleries Scotland, A Moon That Lights Itself is a new piece of music, for electronics, strings and moonlight, by Michael Begg. The work evokes the nocturnal life of the French painter Charles Fran├žois Daubigny in his later years, floating on his boat studio, addressing, directly, the moon.

The work will be premiered in the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh on September 16th 2016. Michael will be accompanied by cellist, Clea Friend.
