Program Note

…a night devoid of stars is a collection of three, short, reflective pieces for unaccompanied euphonium, each inspired by
the writings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., specifically the following passage from “Where Do We Go From Here? Chaos or
Community?”:

The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy.
Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie,
nor establish the truth. Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence
merely increases hate. So it goes. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a
night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate:
only love can do that.

…a night devoid of stars was commissioned by, and dedicated to, American euphonium soloist, Aaron Tindall. The
composition is equally suited to the euphonium or the trumpet (Or the flugel horn).
