In poetry, night-time is for lovers, but occasionally it can also be a time of hardship and solitude. This ties in with the second theme of the concert, sympathy and shared joy. How are these elements manifested in music? The speech and meditation part of the evening focuses on sympathy and shared joy in the daily lives of people today.
