The Moon DancesComposed by Cecilia McDowallFor flute and pianoPublished by Hunt Edition
Movements:I. Paper sea and silver coinsII. Black with shadow and wolvesIII. The red star trembles
The three poems which have inspired each movement are Blacks Dancing to Cuban Rhythms, Dance of the Moon in Santiago, and Swing Ride. Inspired by the intense imagery of Lorca's poetry, The Moon Dances evokes contrasting aspects of dance. The first movement gives a festive exuberance to a carnival atmosphere and in the second the moon dances above the shadows that engulf the dead. In the last, the girl on the swing arcs across the sky, her dance shimmering beneath the moon.
