Setting for alto and guitar of Ewald Oser's translation of Reiner Kunze's poem.
It describes a concert on a hot balmy day, but the audience is described in a wry and somewhat satirical way.
Ewald Osers wrote to me in appreciation of the setting many years ago and gave me permission to use it. He died last year (October 2011) so I release this setting in his honour and also in Reiner Kunze's honour.

The melody that I wrote for the poem also appears in other works of mine, including Serenade for wind quintet (available on this site) and "Serenata nella residenza estiva" for ocarina septet, available on my archive.org collection

The sound sample is an electronic preview.
It describes a harpsichord concert in a rich summer residence on a hot balmy day.

Original translation of the poem

The sala terrena.
a heavy chandelier,
a parade of candles
for the Allegro,
which comes
through the centuries.

Eyes closed,
the harpsichord player
fingers his keys,
a man illuminated,
illumination bursting
from art and fugue.
We sit motionless,
as if in us too a candle,
a candle were burning.

Later in the park,
black beetles scurrying,
violin cases under their arms,
townwards they walk.
Under their overcoats,
for chillier ev'nings,
their black wings show.
We walk behind them,
looking for golden bridges.
