Program: “Theme & Variations”

Theme and Variations on “Est-ce Mars?” by Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck (1561-1621)
“Est-ce Mars le grand Dieu des alarmes, que je vois?
Si l’on doit le juger par ses armes, je le crois!
Toute fois j’apprends en ses regards que c’est plutôt Amour que Mars!”
"Is it Mars the great god of war that I see?
If one must judge by appearances, then it must be!
But I feel from the look in his eyes that he is more like Cupid than Mars!"


"Variations sur un thème de Clément Jannequin" by Jehan Alain (1911-1940)
"L’espoir que j’ay d’acquérir vostre grâce
Et de jouir du bien que je pourchasse
Me tient suspens en attendant vostre appoinct.
Mais si de bref vous ne venez au poinct,
Force sera, Force sera que d’aymer je me lasse."
"The hope I cherish to attain your favour
And to reap the benefits I seek
Keeps me suspended in air while awaiting your grace.
But if you do not respond to my advances,
Force will be that, from loving, I will grow weary."


"Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor," (BWV 582) by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
