Two poems of Friedrich Holderlin bearing almost the same title form the basis of the text for 'Zwei Lieder' (Two Songs): 'Die Aussicht' and 'Aussicht'. Unlike as with common musical settings of poems, Detlev Muller-Siemens has split the vocal part in two levels. On the one hand, Holderlin's text is recited, on the other hand, fragments of the poems are sung at a lower, contemplative level. 'Like vague memories, ascending from the inside from afar. An idyll that becomes entangled in its own images.'.
