Extract from the play "Songs to the livestock keeper"  about poems from the book "The livestock keeper" by the Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, although in this work he used the heteronym Alberto Caeiro.

The original work is created for baritone, violin and piano, and later -i did the adaptation for soprano, flute and piano.

The entire work "Songs to the livestock keeper" hasn't yet been released as such, but instead has been released this extract of the work.

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.
