#26 The Smell of Black Flowers

Lay down and watch. The walls are fluttering. The lines are spreading across them: stems are everywhere, and they're sprouting. Leafs and blooms–all black. Incorporated into the walls.

The voice is forcing the flowers to appear; breathe with Goerne. The piano is holding them back; listen how Schmalcz sways between strophes.

Composer: Franz Schubert
Work: Nacht und Träume
Recording: Matthias Goerne, Alexander Schmalcz
