Composer's Notes
English Français

Das Werk, eine Meditation über den menschlichen Schmerz, ist als eine lange, unablässige Melodie gedacht. Diese Musik kann unter drei unterschiedlichen Aspekten wahrgenommen werden: dem formalen Aspekt, dem melodischen Aspekt, und dem Aspekt des Textes.

— Claude Vivier
