Franz Schubert wrote countless Lieder inspired by nocturnal imagery, often portraying the night as a quasi-magical time conducive to profound emotional catharsis. In contrast, the two Spanish composers, Enrique Granados and Manuel de Falla highlight the heightened passion and eroticism that can unfold during the midnight hours, drawing on the rich tapestry of their homeland’s folk music. Claude Debussy’s Mélodies paint exquisite impressions of dusk and dawn, from a wolf’s mournful howl to the somber tolling of bells.
