On "Avondstilte overal" - (2017)
The tradition tune is a round in three phrases, attributed to Hardenack Otto Conrad Laub (1805-1882).
The text: "Avondstilte overal / Aan de beek de nachtegaal / Strooit er zijn zangen / Vol van verlangen / Door het dal." In English: "Evening silence everywhere, / By the creek, the nightingale / Strews his songs / So filled with longing / Through the valley."
This essay for piano on the round accompanies the melody with a lyric, sustained texture in the lower voices.
