Programme notes: additional text

"Aurora obscura" is a variation of the term "dawn", with "obscura" referring to the Latin word for "dark" or "shadowy". In this case, "aurora obscura" metaphorically refers to a special, mysterious or gloomy form of dawn. In many cultures and literary contexts, dawn is a symbol of new beginnings, hope and light. The addition of the word "obscura" gives the term an artistic or poetic nuance, indicating a unique interpretation or a special atmosphere. When "aurora obscura" is used in a specific artistic or literary context, such as music, it indicates a particular mood or creative expression.
