    These poems and musical settings are tops. I am a violinist and have worked with just a handful of singers on these pieces over the years. They are the ultimate in the violin evoking a mood to support the poetry. The poems' meanings are deep, and touch themes of loss...

    and death. There's also comic relief in No. 6, Goodbye. It is rare to hear music that is scored only for voice and violin, and one would thing that it wouldn't "be enough". But the beauties of a spare combination of voices, namely two, are apparent here. These songs should be played in a quiet acoustical setting where people can hear all the words carefully and the violin does not have to strain to be heard, because there are very delicate dynamics and emotions that must be portrayed.
