Peri Mauer ILLUMINATIONS OF THE NIGHT, for orchestra (world premiere) New York Repertory Orchestra David Leibowitz, conductor May 18, 2013 Church of St. Mary the Virgin, NYC Program Notes "When I began composing ILLUMINATIONS OF THE NIGHT I lived in a studio apartment 28 floors above midtown Manhattan with my piano facing my window.

Often I composed all night until the sun came up. The sound of awakening traffic initiated by the low-pitched screeching of garbage trucks making their early morning rounds signaled that it was time to go to sleep. My first sketches of ILLUMINATIONS OF THE NIGHT date back to my student days at the Manhattan School of Music, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to complete it for performance by the New York Repertory Orchestra conducted by Davi
