Introduction
In Speak to me, my love! the two are at last together, but they can still not make their feelings clear; ‘Tell me in words what you sang’, she says, but ‘When your words are ended, we will sit still and silent’, as are the performers at this point. After a brief and intensely chromatic pianissimo interlude emotions return, but only the hopeless knowledge of inevitable parting of the ways.

from notes by Michael Pilkington 1997
