Street Song for alto flute and guitar


Instrumental duo based on my setting of Vahan Teryan’s poem Street Song
(as translated from the Armenian by James Russell).

The English translation is:

The sad song sung by a wandering singer
Sounds beneath my window
How many times have I heard it before?
So it seems as though I had woven that song
You would think it was I who cried in that song.
You would think I was singing that song out of longing for you.
