This tune has been reworked more times than it’s been played!
It is named “Sehnsucht” (German: longing) for the yearning motif that begins the tune. I knew I had something good, but was never quite able to bring the tune to a satisfying close. A few suggestions from Steve Talaga (playing piano in this recording) set me on a path that feels just right.
Ah! Longing has never felt this good!
