IV. Presto

(~30-40 minutes)

"Die Tod und das Mädchen" - Matthias Claudius
The Maiden:
"Oh! leave me! Prithee, leave me! thou grisly man of bone!
For life is sweet, is pleasant.
Go! leave me now alone!
Go! leave me now alone!"

"Give me thy hand, oh! maiden fair to see,
For I'm a friend, hath ne'er distress'd thee.
Take courage now, and very soon
Within mine arms shalt softly rest thee!"[12]

Hello all, happy Sunday! Just a quick update - you'll be enjoying the cello chops of the wonderful Clara Abel this Friday night at the groupmuse. (I unfortunately had a rehearsal pop up that conflicts, but all is well, because you'll have Clara!)

Have a great groupmuse! And see you at the next one!

I love this piece, but I've never heard it like this. Brcause of the relatively small space the experience was profound. It was deep, rich and dimensional. The musicians were great as both musicians and people. Thanks Groupmuse.
