Programme Notes

Michael Cryne - Stratus

Stratus clouds are low level, uniform clouds that resemble a high-altitude fog. Stratus clouds that form at elevations from 2,000 to 7,000 metres are known as altostratus clouds, and may contain ice crystals, which makes them more reflective and allow the sun to shine through. The piece is calm, reflective and tinged with a slight melancholia. The entire piece should be played very freely.
