The See'r

First line:
An old man with a straw in his mouth
author of text

The See’r, to a text of Ives’s own, is a pawky portrait of a village character watching the world go by. It was written in 1920—or, more likely, arranged from a portion of the Beecher Overture he had been working on in 1904.

The See’r («Le voyant»), également sur un texte de Ives, brosse le portrait pince-sans-rire d’un villageois observant le cours du monde. Cette œuvre fut écrite en 1920—ou, plus certainement, arrangée à partir d’une portion de la Beecher Overture à laquelle le compositeur avait travaillé en 1904.

The See’r, wiederum auf einen eigenen Text von Ives, ist ein pfiffiges Porträt eines dörflichen Charakters, der die Welt betrachtet, die an ihm vorbeizieht. Es wurde 1920 geschrieben—oder genauer von einem Ausschnitt der Beecher Ouvertüre arrangiert, an der er 1904 gearbeitet hatte.
