Description

Composer's note:  The title for this work is taken from one of the late odes of Friedrich Hölderlin.
I would suggest that the poem and its translation appear in any program note.


Lebenslauf
Hoch auf strebte mein Geist, aber die Liebe zog
Schön ihn nieder; das Laid bugt ihn gewaltiger;
So durchlauf ich des Lebens
Bogen und kehre, woher ich kam.
--Friedrich Hölderlin (1770-1843)

Course of Life
High my spirit aspired, but love, in truth,
Pulled my spirit down, and grief pulled it down further
So the arc of my life
Returns me to where I came.
--Lewis Nielson (trans)
