Seven pieces for soprano, horn, piano and soprano quartet, setting poetry by George, Hölderlin, Uhrland and O'Hara. The Spring and Nature exist as central themes of the work although these are very much hidden in the work and only very occassionally rise to the surface. Lively and slow movements exchange with an optional movement for soprano quartet creating a subtle link to Les Angelus by Debussy.
Instrumentation: Soprano, French horn, piano (includes optional movement for 4 sopranos).
Duration: 20 min.
Contents note: 1. Park -- 2. Zwischenspiel (solo horn) -- 3. Frühlingsglaube (soprano and piano) -- 4. Ave Maria (soprano solo) -- 5. Memoir of Sergei O .... -- 6. Der Frühling (for 4 sopranos) -- 7. Der Frühling.
