"Tief in den Himmel verklingt... (Ricarda Huch) – Jens Josef"
for voice (mezzo-soprano / alto), recorder and piano
The last poem of the famous writer, set to music in unusual, wide-ranging sound areas:The recorder part can be played in alternation of sopranino in f '' (also a soprano recorder in c'' would be possible) - and bass recorder in F. In the extreme high or law movements of the piano part, a "Garklein flute" in C ''' and a double bass recorder in F would be preferred;However, this is not a condition for a valid interpretation of the piece!
