Work introduction

… and time is running past midnight … is rather short orchestral “post-scriptum” to my first opera Dracula. Though not containing any direct musical or scenographic quotes from the almost two hours long performance this composition certainly is a sort of an echo of the intense emotional atmosphere of the Dracula score. The listener should of course feel free from having any associative bonds to the subject of Bram Stoker’s vampyres and their adventures. The main theme of this composition, reflected mostly in the rhythmic structure of the score is the time which is running rapidly towards an unknown future.
