Leila Lustig set this duo to “Hymne du printemps,”  part of Paul Valéry’s much longer poem La Jeune Parque. In this section of the poem a young girl thinks about the sudden arrival of spring and how fate moves one’s life and death, love and withdrawal. Two scores are provided–one at concert pitch for the soprano and a one with the alto flute part transposed.
