One of six arrangements of a song written in 1973 which I based on a poem by Otto Wanke
Versions are available for guitar with alto voice (with the words as below), cor anglais, flute, clarinet, viola or violin

My performance of the original song can be heard here in the vocal version

The zip file here contains the full score and also the guitar part as a seprate pdf


The poem is a somewhat resigned teenage-angst song of unrequited love.

Ich muss mich damit abfinden
dass Feuer und Wasser nicht zusammen passen
Das Feuer das mit heller Flamme leuchtet
das seine Umgebung anzünden möchte
das knistert.
Das Wasser das gemächlich vor sich hinfliesst
das sich nur langsam erwärmen lässt,
das sucht
das sucht
Ich muss mich damit abfinden
dass Feuer und Wasser nicht zusammen passen.

My English version:

I must settle my mind on this
that fire and water do not go together
Hot fire whose great flames flare up so brightly
which wants to set light
to all things around it
spits fiercely
Cool water smoothly flows ahead so slowly
and takes so long to warm up
and seeps

in search
I must settle my mind on this
that fire and water do not go together.

the rest of the sound samples - in which I have given the melody instrument a few variations - are electronic perviews

The original song Feuer und Wasser (Fire and Water) is based on a poem of teenage angst and resignation
(various versions available on musicaneo)
I have since made an extended arrangement for flute quartet
which is available at
http://www.musicaneo.com/sheetmusic/sm-184302_feuer_und_wasser.html#197154
and this wind quartet version is based on that flute quartet with some of the melodic material switched
between the various instruments
The zip file contains score and parts
