In the painful, fury-laden atmosphere of the War, the intimate voice of the violin wafts upward, as if by miracle, expressing with restrained dignity (Kelly) the sensations felt upon returning from a horrifying military campaign, as it does the more nostalgic ones of a drafted composer attempting to find his roots (Antoine). The German Pfitzner, in his own more tempestuous way, seeks to pay homage to his country’s musical past, even while the gentle strains linger from a Nocturne by the young Lili Boulanger whom sickness was soon to claim.
