When the moon appears orange or yellow, it simply means we are seeing it through more layers of the atmosphere. This lyrical composition set in the accessible key of concert B-flat uses multiple musical layers to create a musical impression of the moon's appearance. Gentle percussion and small dissonant moments offer the opportunity to learn rubato phrasing. Some tempo variations help create a mysterious mood and approachable instrumental ranges allow performers to focus on creating emotional moments with a beautiful performance.
