Einsam bin ich, nicht alleine – Volkslied aus dem Schauspiel Preciosa von Carl Maria von Weber, S453
1820; incidental music to Preciosa (Wolff), J279

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Quite why Liszt described Weber’s music to Preciosa as an opera must remain a mystery—indeed, the shape of the piece is not greatly different from Liszt’s Prometheus Choruses—but we can only thank him for bringing this charming aria to our attention.
