Of Brahms and Massenet
Rivers of sound cascade hemiolas –
three into two, two into three –
swept along in passionate sequences;
rising and tumbling, they burst all constraints.Contrast of instrument, strings and piano;
mouthpieces faithful channel composer.
Mirrored by features northern and orient;
Poland and Taiwan, fair hair and dark.
Female energy blends all these differences,
Singing tear-drops fly from her bow;
Borne aloft by tide unstoppable,
