Rosenduft - Lied ohne Worte für
Violine und Klavier-
Shigeo Kashiwagi gewidmet
A song without
words for violin and piano was suggested by a beautiful bouquet of fragrant
roses, brought by friends as they visited for dinner and fine conversation.
Many days later, the roses open widely
and the fragrance lingers to delight.
A simple set of
chord changes based on common tone relationships comprises the accompaniment
as the solo voice above sings across the registers of the violin. Lyricism
throughout, and after a momentary bout of drama, the lyrical mood ends this work nostalgically.
