Description
Composer's Note Narcissus wanders through the forest, observing, enjoying ... unselfconscious but self-absorbed. He sees as pool of water and then as he approaches notices his reflection in the water. He is intrigued and thenjumps back in fright. Once more he approaches ... it is still there. Narcissus steps away from the pool to consider this phenomenon. Several times he approaches, the figure is always there watching him. In the shimmering sunlightNarcissus seems to see this glorious and attractive being moving in the rippling water. He is dazzled and slowly holds out his arms. To his amazement the figure responds. In awe and wonder Narcissus approaches closer and closer.With a sudden change of mood Narcissus dances happily and playfully ... the figure echoing him. But then, Narcissus begins to question anxiously the lack of any independent response...is he being mocked? He gets more and moreaggitated and finally in a fury he rushes headlong into the water to grapple with the figure. The waves surge up and Narcissus is drowned. There is a distant shimmering vision of Narcissus and his reflection. Then in the settingsun the vision disappears, the forest is empty and the pool lies undisturbed. Thea Musgrave
