Respighi, Il Tramonto for quartet and soprano
The text for this beautiful and haunting work comes from a Percy Shelley poem, translated into Italian by Respighi himself. The poem describes a young woman who spends the night with her lover, only to awake and find that he has died in the night. The poem (and the piece) continues, describing the rest of the woman's long and lonely life until she passes away in peace to join her lost love.
