"Ich lausch dem Wind, schweigend and versonnen." Scartazzini has selected contemplative texts inspired by nature such as this poetic miniature and transformed them into subtle, delicate duos. The countertenor (which also can be sung by a female voice) juxtaposes his own vocal part and the ethereal sounding cello part with light gestures on two crotales. in the third miniature a sense that the wind is barely whispering is conveyed by the voice.
