Variations concertantes sur le nom de Paul Verlaine pour basson et orchestre: "Chanson d'automne"

(Concert Variations on the Name of Paul Verlaine for Bassoon and Orchestra: "Autumn Song")

"Les sanglots longs / Des violons / De l'automne / Blessent mon coeur / D'une langueur / Monotone." ("The long sobs of the autumnal violins wound my heart with a monotonous languour."

The ebb and flow of string layers like a melancholy sigh; the keening wail of a simple descending melody on bassoon, mourning lost love. The dying autumn leaves toss and fly at the mercy of the winds.
