Misc. Notes:

While only a measure longer (59 bars vs. 58), the cello and piano setting is much more than a mere transcription of the piano original.

Misc. Comments

  • The term "skirl" is used euphonically, not in reference to bagpipes (one may remember Woody Allen's definition of a gentleman), but it is hard if not impossible to find a French equivalent. The adjective "stridulant" is used as a possible semantic (and punning : strie du lent) transfer, although it over-emphasizes the squawking or shrill cries of the bird rather than its flapping wings when taking off or graceful gliding movements on a pool of water, for which the term "whirl" might have been another approximation, close to "world". The arrangements of this piano piece are categorized as paraphrases for different combinations of string instruments as they develop in completely different directions compared to the original piano piece, as if the bird's calls were growing more and more indistinct in distance as in time.
