Worry is a heavy load (The Book of Proverbs)

For Solo (instrumental or vocal part)

Uploaded on Sep 30, 2018

To express the essence of the text, there is a huge contrast between the two frases. In this I made use of some rhethorical principles often used in German Baroque.
The first line is a variated chromatical descending line (passus duriusculus). The second line is more modal colored, ascending and consisting of wider intervals. Literal word painting is on the word 'froh', a figura corta, in German Baroque often used for positive and uplifting affects. The subtile hit on the triangel underscores the importance of the word 'froh'.
