A short cantata or, if you prefer, a long song Barbara Maria Willi - Sämtliche Cembalo several minutes, Demeter op. This is primarily due to the subject matter of the work. Demeter, the goddess of agriculture and harvest worshipped in the Eleusinian mysteries was the mother of Persephone. When Persephone was gathering flowers in a Sicilian meadow, Hades, the ruler of the underworld, fell in love with her. Suddenly the ground opened and he abducted the girl to his kingdom.
Zeus intervened and, as a result of an agreement between the gods, from that moment Persephone was to remain for half One Direction - Story Of My Life year with Hades as his wife, and then return to her mother for the other half.

DAnglebert (M. Double) - Jean-Henry dAnglebert spring, and dies at the end of the autumn. Zofia Szymanowska devoted her poem not of the highest quality, somewhat pretentious and lacking the lively charm of the lyrics of Songs of the Aint No Sunshine - Various - The Love Box Princess to only one episode of the myth: the search by the grieving Demeter for her lost daughter.
In the dark, I heard your cry, my child and so I go into the void, stretching out my arms, and I press the void to my deadened bosom. The sea sobs into the blue distance I step into the silent Nirvana of the Night where only the heart rings, a heart glazed with tears.

The melody of the solo vocal part is atonal, with various combinations of intervals typical of Szymanowski; we recognise there elements of diatonic, whole-tone, semitonic and Arabic-Persian Barbara Maria Willi - Sämtliche Cembalo. No motif returns within the course of the cantata; new material keeps coming in.
The development of the composition, in a slow tempo and dynamics muted almost throughout, passes through various phases of mood: from the fantastical introduction and the first stanza, through the painful severity of the second stanza, to the somewhat sharper drama and climax in the third one — the only point in the work reaching forte and fortissimo. After the dynamics die down, there follows the most beautiful, final lyrical segment, linked to the last stanza.
The violins, very high, repeat the simple motif on three diatonic notes, accompanied by the fragmented trills of the lower strings and the sophisticated, multiple-note chords of the piano played arpeggio. The first performance of Demeter did not take place until 17 April at the Warsaw Philharmonic Hall. It was conducted by Grzegorz Fitelbergthe soloist was Maria Karnicka.
