A Little Phrase (Une petite phrase)
Year of composition 1984
Duration 2 minutes
This piece first appeared in my “Ariosi” for voice, solo violin and orchestra (1963) under the title “Compianto”. In 1984, it was included in Volker Schlöndorff’s film “Un amour de Swann” in a modified form for string sextet (with variations by the students of my Cologne composition class).
