Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Josefine is for a violin–player, who is also a vocalist. The title of the piece quotes a F.Kafka's tale whose title is “Josephine the Singer or the Mouse Folk”, and it is inspired by this tale.

    We have to think to this passage of the tale listening to the composition:

    “Is it in fact singing at all? Although we are unmusical we have a tradition of singing; in the old days people did sing; this is mentioned in legends and some songs have actually survived, which, it is true, no one can now sing. Thus we have an inkling of what sing is, and Jospehine's art does not really correspond to it. So is it singing at all? Is it not perhaps just a piping? (F.Kafka, “Josephine the Singer or the Mouse Folk”, Schocken Books Inc.).
