The little Wiegenlied has of course nothing to do with the magisterial Dehmel setting of the same name in Opus 41. But one can nevertheless hear the young Strauss beginning to find surer ground. Here are the beginnings of that sweetness of tone and sense of interplay between voice and piano that would become the hallmark of so many of his songs.

Le petit Wiegenlied qui suit n’a, bien sûr, rien à voir avec le magistral Wiegenlied fondé sur un texte de Dehmel et figurant dans l’op.41. On y entend cependant le jeune Strauss en passe de découvrir un terrain plus ferme. Ce sont les prémices de cette douceur sonore et de ce jeu entre voix et piano qui seront le sceau de tant de ses leider.

Das kleine Wiegenlied, welches folgt, hat natürlich nichts mit der gebieterischen gleichnamigen Dehmel-Vertonung op. 41 zu tun. Gleichwohl ist hier deutlich spürbar, dass der junge Strauss inzwischen festeren Boden unter sich hatte. Hier deuten sich jener süße Ton und das besondere Zusammenspiel zwischen Singstimme und Klavier an, die später Markenzeichen von so vielen seiner Lieder sein sollten.
