This song is about a woman. Not a specific woman, but someone that you have memories of in your heart. The story is about the woman's life, from youth, love, the hecticness of life, and the end.
The opening theme is the leitmotif of the storyteller. This phrase happens in variations many times through the piece. This piece is very lyrical and will require the performer to extend their phrasing skills to the limit.
Parts included: euphonium BC & TC
