Program Note:

It is difficult for me to find something insightful to say about a piece that is so close to my heart. I think Rilke’s text says it best:

Everything that touches us, me and you,
Takes us together like a violin’s bow
Which draws one voice out of two separate strings
Upon what instrument are we two spanned?
And what musician holds us in his hand?
