The Marbled Midnight Mile is a companion to Bryant's earlier works Dusk and First Light - the three of them together forming a loosely-related night cycle. The title evokes an extended journey through the myriad wandering thoughts that occur in the solitude of night. The music makes only modest technical demands of the ensemble, but is a perfect vehicle to expand the band's musical maturity and sensitivity. Dur: 8:00 (Grade 4)
