author of text

Abril and Maig were composed in 1920 to poems by Trinitat Catasús. They are short, uncomplicated and lyrical, and also nicely contrasted: Maig is a wonderfully serene description of the month of May which speaks of breezes, lifting mists, burgeoning flowers, silvery nights and the soft humming of bees (‘Bordoneig suau d’abelles’).

Abril et Maig furent composés en 1920 sur des poémes de Trinitat Catasús. Il s’agit d’œuvres courtes, simples, lyriques et joliment contrastées: Maig est une évocation merveilleusement sereine du mois de mai avec ses brises, ses brumes qui s’élèvent, ses fleurs qui bourgeonnent et ses nuits argentines, sans oublier le suave bourdonnement des abeilles («Bordoneig suau d’abelles»).

Abril und Maig entstanden 1920 zu Gedichten von Trinitat Catasús. Sie sind kurz, unkompliziert und lyrisch und heben sich auch schön voneinander ab: Maig ist eine wunderbar heitere Beschreibung des Monats Mai, in der von Brisen, sich lichtendem Nebel, knospenden Blumen, silbrigen Nächten und dem sanften Summen der Bienen („Bordoneig suau d’abelles“) die Rede ist.
