Vision (Wellesz)

Acrylic on greyboard, 21 x 29.7 cm. 2022. SOLD

A Painting based on the orchestral song 'Vision' by Austrian composer Egon Wellesz. The piece contains stretches of instrumental music, vocalises (wordless singing) and a setting of Georg Trakl's poem 'Im Park' ('In the Park'):

  Walking again in the old park,

  O! Silent red and yellow blooms.

  You mourn too, you gentle gods,

  With the autumnal gold of the elm.

  Looming from the bluish pond

  The reeds; the thrush silenced by evening.

  O! bow you then your own head

  Before the decayed ancestral marble.

  (Wieder wandelnd im alten Park,

  O! Stille gelb und roter Blumen.

  Ihr auch trauert, ihr sanften Götter,

  Und das herbstliche Gold der Ulme.

  Reglos ragt am bläulichen Weiher

  Das Rohr, verstummt am Abend die Drossel.

  O! dann neige auch du die Stirne

  Vor der Ahnen verfallenem Marmor.)
