El Cadí a l’hivern (Cadí in winter)

Soprano, piano
Duration: 2’05’’
Lyrics: Esperança Castell

Comment by the composer

«A musical composition based on a poem by Esperança Castell, doctor and psychoanalysist, reflecting the moment at dusk when darkness wins out over the fading sun. This piece might be a metaphor for certain situations and moments in our lives.»

Text (catalan version)

El sol és feble,
La llum blava del vespre
venç el combat,
les finestres es tanquen.
Al bosc cau una estrella.

English version (Julie Wark)

The sun is feeble.
Indigo light of evening
has won the battle
and the windows are being closed.
A star falls in the forest.
