Soprano, Bb clarinet, and piano
Lyrics adapted from tales of the Brothers Grimm; Margaret Hunt, trans.
Duration: ca. 12:00
This is one of those strange and twisted fairy tales that made its way into the stories collected by the Grimm brothers. On first reading, it’s difficult to decide if it’s silly or spooky – successive readings indicate that it’s definitely both. The tall tales twinkle with both outlandishness and foreboding in a fantastical conversation between voice, clarinet, and piano.
