Goethe, poems.

Presence in a moment.

Wanderers Nachtlied, ein Gleiches.

The view over a great span of time.

Chorus mysticus, “Faust,second part”.

The relationship, the differences between these ways of using writing.



Just the beginning of the second movement in 8th Symphony by Gustav Mahler this morning.He has set music to the concluding scene of “Faust.Second part” by Goethe.

The still, calm music .Also a bit dark.
