Story, and brief musical analysis:

There is a legend, told by some who can see earthbound spirits, of those who only come out after dark. Beware!  Those spirits may be malevolent! They are the Night Visitors.

“Night Visitors’ (2019) is a work for Chamber Orchestra, in one movement by David Dolatowski. The piece is scored for 1 Flute, 1 Oboe, 1Clarinet in B-flat, 1 Bassoon, 2 Horns in F, Violin I (4)  Violin II (4) Viola (3)  Violoncello (2) Double Bass (1) 

The piece is primarily atonal, with it’s own unique harmonies. The texture in the strings creates an etheric quality that alternates with highly rhythmic passages, while the winds offer several motives, or themes. A fugue-like section offers some counterpoint, prior to a dramatic ending Night Visitors is performed and recorded by the Utrecht Session Chamber Orchestra 2023, Alejandro Puerta Cantalapiedra conducting.
