Tune of the Day #28

Pedro the Lion - Second Best

So here's the history of the song cycle, according to me: Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Wolf, Faure, Respighi, Vaughan Williams, Finzi, Bernstein, David Bazan of Pedro the Lion.

This particular song is from the album (cycle) "Control", which tells the story of a failing marriage that leads to spousal murder. It is...a little intense. But so is the Schwanengesang.
