Karol Szymanowski: W południe

A selection from Karol Szymanowski’s sensual and obsessive song cycle Songs of the Infatuated Muezzin,”W południe” (“At Noon”) opens in a city “white with heat.” Its descending phrases capture the languid, wilting feeling of a humid day, before the singer grows excited by a vision of the object of his obsession bathing in the nude.
