Programme Note:
Starry Night (1995/2007)

Starry Night is a piano work in twelve sections, each named for a sign of the zodiac. Begun in 1985, the first two signs were performed for composer Serge Garant, Mack’s doctoral supervisor at the Université de Montreal. Noticeably impressed, Garant—to whom the complete set is dedicated—confessed to being unaware of its twelve-tone dimension. The incident inspired great hope for a creative alliance, but was quashed by Garant’s sudden death that same year. Starry Night would not be completed for another nine years, reflecting a cycle of personal upheaval and reintegration.
