Mozart symphony No. 40 G-minor:

III. Menuetto. Allegretto-Trio:

From Rilke’s ‘Book of Hours’:

I live my life in widening circles
that reach out across the world.
I may not complete this last one but I give myself to it.

I circle around God, around the primordial tower.
I’ve been circling for thousand of years and I still don’t know:
am I a falcon, a storm, or a great song?
