    Program Notes

    FALLING STARS by RAINER MARIA RILKE (trans. Albert Ernest Flemming)
    Do you remember still the falling stars
    that like swift horses through the heavens raced
    and suddenly leaped across the hurdles
    of our wishes--do you recall? And we
    did make so many! For there were countless numbers
    of stars: each time we looked above we were
    astounded by the swiftness of their daring play,
    while in our hearts we felt safe and secure
    watching these brilliant bodies disintegrate,
    knowing somehow we had survived their fall.
