Dawn (Pассвет)

Mihail Afanasiev (Михаил Афанасьев), composer

Who are the lonely awake behind these lighted windows, sometimes until very late at night? This tale, about the intimacy of “ordinary lives”, describes the feverish expectation of dawn, as a release from the anxiety of the night vigil. The meditative and dramatic music beats to the rhythm of the breathing of the night lights, and gradually creates an anguish supported by the organic and mysterious images. The tension is resolved by the arrival of the saving and luminous dawn, which dispels the anxious visions of the night, but also cancels out its dark magic.
