Street Song for viola 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.
