Liederkreis, Op. 39: I. In a Foreign Land From there beyond the lightning flashes, clouds come from my homeland. Father and mother are long since dead, and no one there knows me any more. How soon, oh, how, soon will come that quiet time when I too shall rest! And over me in lovely solitude the woods will rustle, and no one here will know me any more. II. Intermezzo In wondrous joy I hold your image deep in my heart. It looks at me so brightly, so gaily, every hour of the day. Softly my heart sings itself an old and lovely song, that soars into the air and swiftly flies to you. III. Conversation in the Forest 'It is late, it is cold, why do you ride alone in this great forest? Beauteous maiden let me lead you home.' 'Man's deceitfulness has broken my heart. Hunting horns are nearing; fly, for you know not who I am.' 'So richly arrayed are horse and rider, so entrancing your fair figure. Ah! now I know you, God help me! You are the witch Lorelei!' 'You know me well, and know my castle high above the Rhine. It is late, it is cold. You will never leave this forest Nevermore!' IV. Silence No one knows, no one can guess how happy I am, how happy! Ah, if one alone but knew, just the one-and no one else at all! The snow outside is not as still, nor the stars in their heights as silent and secret as my thoughts. I wish I were a little bird flying across the sea—over the sea and far beyond until I were in Heaven! V. Moonlit night It was as if heaven had sofdy kissed the earth, and earth in blossoming splendour could only dream of heaven. A breeze passing over the fields gendy swayed the ears of com. The woods rusded sofdy, and the night was bright with stars. And my soul spread wide its wings, and flew over the silent land, as if it were flying home. VI. Beautiful Foreign Land The tree tops rustie and sigh as if the old gods were making their rounds of these ruined half-sunken walls. Here, under the myrtles, what is your vague message to me, fantastic night? All the stars sparkle at me with love in their shining eyes, telling of some great happiness in store. Vn. In a Castle The old knight sleeps at his look-out undisturbed by rain or forest sounds. Beard and hair grown into one, breast and ruff turned to stone, for centuries he has sat in his silent cell up in that castle. Outside all is quiet, everyone has gone down the valley, only the woodbirds sing in the empty window arches. Far below in the sunshine a wedding party floats by on the Rhine; musicians strike up merrily — and the lovely bride weeps. Vm. In a Foreign Land The gushing brooklet and forest murmurs so charm me that I know not where I am; the nightingales too, call to me in the solitude, as a reminder of dear bygone days. In the flickering moonlight I seem to see a castle, which I know is far from here. It is as if in a garden of red and white roses, my darling were awaiting me - yet she died long ago. IX. Sadness Truly I can sometimes sing as if I am happy, then tears will flow to relieve my heavy heart When spring is in the air, nightingales will sing their song of longing and gladden us, yet no one feels the pain and sadness of their song. X. Twilight Twilight is about to spread its wings, the trees stir and shiver, clouds drift by like oppressive dreams, what does all this dark mystery mean? If you have a deer, let it not graze alone; hunters are about in the woods, sounding thier horns, voices echo here and there. If you have a friend in this world, trust him not at this hour, his eyes and lips may be smiling but in treacherous peace he is plotting war. Whatever now goes tired to rest will rise again tomorrow; but many things can be lost in the night forever, so keep awake, be on your guard! XI. In the Woods A wedding party passed by the hillside; I heard the birds singing; then horsemen came flashing by, sounding their horns - a merry hunting party. But before I realized it, night enveloped everything; the only sound to be heard was the sighing of the forest, and deep in my heart, I shuddered. X n . Spring Night Over the garden I heard the migrant birds returning; a sign that spring is in the air and the time for blossoming. I want to rejoice, I want to weep, for I cannont believe what the moon and stars say, what the forest whispers and the nightingales sing to me: 'She is yours, she is yours!'

Reception to follow in the Faculty Lounge. Sonata No. 1 by Walter Buczynski: 'The sonata is a four movement work with an introduction that contains all the musical material for the following sections. Its opening movement makes use of the crescendo/decrescendo element which is displayed in the first 45 seconds of the introduction. The second movement is a typical scherzo. [The ABA* form (scherzo, trio, scherzo) is unique in that A* is the retrograde of A.] The third movement is Adagio-making use of pedal and sonoric effects. The last movement is actually a condensed first movement brought back to give the work a cyclic feeling." Vincula by Barbara Pentland: "The title, Latin for "bonds", refers not only to the unifying factor of a common source for the whole piece, but also to the fetters of poverty and famine, persecution and fear, afflicting so many living beings." Program notes by the composers except for additions made in parentheses by the performer.
