Turn it up, but this will get loud at the end

Webern - Six pieces for orchestra, Op. 6, No. 4, Langsam marcia funebre

Oculus

Webern steps out to have a cigarette (not a cigar, as the rumors say). Webern steps out to check on the cat. Webern steps out to see what that noise is. Webern steps out to retrieve the morning's paper, forgotten until night. Webern steps out...now he can't remember why. Webern steps out to look at Orion. Webern steps out to listen to the wind. Webern steps out, thirty-seven years before Joe Jackson's hit, "Steppin' Out." Webern steps out to have a cigarette and is hit by a ball. Webern steps out to have a cigarette, but left his matches in the house, a carelessness that saves his life. Webern steps out to have a cigarette, and a young woman skips down the street humming. Webern steps out to have a cigarette, is shot by a foreigner, and says, "It's over." Like a pilot, going down. It's over.
