Abstract of the work Songs to the livestock keeper, about the poems of the book "El guardià de ramats" (The livestock keeper) of Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, although in this work he used the heteronym of Alberto Caeiro.

The original work was created for baritone, violin and piano, and later I made the adaptation for soprano, flute and piano.

In this piece I give the possibility of using a rapsoda to recite the poem before the interpretation of the theme.

 The poem on which the theme is inspired is the following:

 

Última estrella a desaparèixer abans del dia...
 
Última estrella a desaparèixer abans del dia,
poso en la teva tremolosa fuita blanca els meus ulls calms,
i et veig independentment de mi;
alegre pel criteri (?) que tinc de poder veure’t
sense cap “estat d’ànima”, somio veure’t.
La teva bellesa rau per a mi en el fet d’existir,
la teva grandesa rau en el fet d’existir enterament fora de mi.
 
Last star to disappear before the day ...
 
 
Last star to disappear before the day,
I put in your trembling white flight my calm eyes,
And I see you independently of me;
Glad for the criterion (?) that I have to see you
Without "state of soul", I dream to see you.
Your beauty lies to me in the fact of existing,
Your greatness lies in the fact that you exist entirely outside of me.
