Program Notes

Evening Star is an arrangement of Wagner's Song to the Evening Star ((O du mein Holder Abendstern) from the opera Tannhäuser. In Act III, Scene 2, Wolfram, left alone as darkness draws on and the stars appear, begins to play and sings a hymn to the evening star that also hints at Elizabeth's approaching death, Wie Todesahnung Dämmrung deckt die Lande...O du mein holder Abendstern ("Like a premonition of death the twilight shrouds the earth... O thou my fair evening star").
