Work introduction

In the 1950s Francis Burt composed the full-length opera Volpone (based on a play by the English writer Ben Jonson), which was premiered in 1960 in Stuttgart. The first song in the opera, the appearance of the three jesters (Androgyno, Nano the Dwarf and Buffone the Clown), served him as a model for a new ensemble piece, the Variationen eines alten Liedes. A fool’s song without words.
