Ilmenau

First line:
Über allen Gipfeln
composer
1901/2
author of text
1780; Wandrers Nachtlied

 
Ilmenau sets one of Goethe’s most famous lyrics, in German, providing it, as an alternative, with a translation into English by Harmony. Ives dated it 1902 in 114 Songs but it was probably composed earlier. With its simple, largely chordal accompaniment, it is an utterance of piercing lyricism.

Ilmenau met en musique l’un des plus célèbres poèmes lyriques de Goethe, en allemand ou bien en anglais, dans une traduction d’Harmony. Dans ses 114 Songs, Ives data cette œuvre de 1902, mais elle est probablement antérieure. Avec son accompagnement simple, essentiellement en accords, elle est d’un lyrisme perçant.

Ilmenau vertont eines der berühmtesten Gedichte Goethes (auf Deutsch, mit einer englischen Übersetzung von Harmony als Alternative). Ives datierte es in 114 Songs mit 1902, aber es wurde wahrscheinlich früher komponiert. Mit seiner schlichten, weitgehend akkordischen Begleitung ist es eine ergreifend lyrische Äußerung.
