Walter Niemann: Holstein Idylls, op. 8

“And suddenly an idyll lay before him. Over by the pond the stately courtyard with the mighty residential building and the linden-shaded living rooms, the green panelwork of the walls, the bright red of their bricks reflected in the clear water, the bridge rolling and roaring dully under the wheels, the dusting mill wheel and in the background the vast radiant and bursting forest in the spring sun.” – Timm Kröger
