Programme Notes

This work began life as a short song, with words by Heine, written in 1947 when I was a student in Melbourne. In this arrangement for viola and piano, I made some minor revisions to the verses of the song and added an extended coda. Parting When two that loved are parting, Each takes the other’s hand And straight they fall to weeping And sighing, o’er the land. But we two, when we parted, Wept not nor sighed we thus, The weeping and the sighing Came afterward, with us. Heinrich Heine, trans. Robert Garran PS
