Program Notes

Silbertöne is a reworking of material from Franz Schubert’s song “Ständchen” from Schwanengesang. The title is derived from a stanza in the Ludwig Rellstab text:

Sie verstehn des Busens Sehnen,
Kennen Liebesschmerz,
Rühren mit den Silbertönen
Jedes weiche Herz.

Which translates to:

[The nightingales] understand the heart’s longing,
know the pain of love,
they calm each tender heart
with their silver tones.

Silbertöne was composed for the California State Long Beach Laptop Ensemble for theatrical performance at La Mama Spoleto Open, Spoleto Due Mondi Festival 2013 under the direction of Brian Byungkoo Ahn and Martin Herman.
