‘Silent Night’ for String Quartet
This string-quartet arrangement of ‘Silent Night’ includes excerpts from other ‘evening’ tunes
his arrangement, which could be titled “Silent Nights,” is a compilation of night-related tunes to go with the classic Christmas carol “Silent Night.” Winter time—with its short days and long nights—is an ideal time to reflect on the hours after sunset.
The pieces I have selected for inclusion in this quartet arrangement include the Christmas carol “Silent Night” as well as excerpts from “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik,” a serenade composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1787, and Alexander Borodin’s Nocturne (Night), the third movement from his String Quartet No. 2 (1881).
