The musical work Sommernacht (Summer Night), is also the title of a poem by Gottfried Keller. The composer, Schoeck, took a section of this poem and summarized it in his own words, adding that to the score. Schoeck doesn’t specify precisely that this action needs to be shared with the audience. However, at the very least it is thought appropriate to make the listener aware of it, and Orpheus Executive Director Alexander Scheirle has provided the German text and added the English translation below.
