“Frühling (Spring)” from “Vier Letzte Lieder (Four Last Songs)” by Richard Strauss, sung by Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, with Sir Georg Solti conducting the BBC Symphonic Orchestra. A poem by Herman Hesse set to music.

“In dämmrigen Grüften
träumte ich lang
von deinen Bäumen und blauen Lüften,
von deinem Duft und Vogelsang.”

“In dim crypts
I long dreamt
of your trees and blue air,
of your scent and birdsong.”
