Programme Note

Three Stones is written on request by Lore Lixenberg, to whom this little piece is dedicated. It comprises three very small songs for solo voice, in which the singer is also - while singing - playing on "traces of instruments" - Antique cymbal, violin and stones.

The texts for all three songs are anonymous. The second song uses an anonymous English love poem, while in the first and the third songs the text is taken from Etruscan writing on stones. What the text is about in nobody knows. Enigmas written in stone!
