"Cold Starry Night" is a impressionistic symphonic tone poem. It is program music, based on the painting "Starry Night" by Vincent van Gogh. This piece evokes a shimmering sky of infinite depth. A wide array of counter-themes mimic a paradox; the heavens are enchanting, yet can seem cold and sterile, and even sinister. Contact composer for parts. ( Duration: 6:45.

Addendum: The first two reviews were quite useful, and in response I have made substantial revisions. In particular, I removed the divisi in the cello section, I fixed the notation for percussion, and cleaned up the notation to a considerable degree. Most significantly, I added a greater divergence of textures and dynamics. I also substituted a muted trumpet for the English horn, in order to be playable by smaller orchestras that lack that instrument.
