Programme Note:
One of my favorite artists is Cornelius Krieghoff, and this particular painting especially caught my attention because of the idyllic depiction of the winter landscape. I actually have two excellent reproductions of Krieghoff landscapes (The Indian Campsite and The Toll Gate) over my fireplace, so this one felt almost familiar.
What always strikes me about Krieghoff paintings is his use of light, specifically in White Horse Inn by Moonlight, the way he brings out the sparkling brightness of the moon's reflection on the snow in the night. I tried to capture in music this mystical glow coupled with the warmth of the inn by the use of arpeggiated chords and a warmhearted theme in the piano and the shimmering light of the moon by the harmonics of the violin and cello There's also a sense of nobility and camaraderie as one might feel if one were staying in the White Horse Inn in the middle of a Canadian winter.
