Die Rose – Romance von Louis Spohr [aus dem Singspiel Zemire und Azor], S571

composer
published 1876
composer
1818/9; Zemire und Azor

 
Spohr’s opera Zemire und Azor had already been unkindly relegated to history when Liszt made his simple transcription of its best-loved romance, and so the piano arrangement is often catalogued amongst Liszt’s song transcriptions. Many a collector of 78rpm gramophone records or transfers therefrom will be familiar with Die Rose as ‘Rose softly blooming’—which was in its day a ubiquitous parlour song.

L’opéra de Spohr Zemire und Azor avait déjà été cruellement relégué dans l’histoire ancienne quand Liszt composa sa simple transcription de la romance préférée de cet opéra, ce qui explique pourquoi l’arrangement pour piano est souvent catalogué parmi les transcriptions de chansons de Liszt. De nombreux collectionneurs de disques 78 tours ou de copies de ces disques connaissent bien Die Rose sous sa forme «Rose softly blooming»—qui fut, à son époque, une chanson que l’on entendait dans tous les salons anglais.

Français: Hypérion

Spohrs Oper Zemire und Azor war bereits herzlos zu den Akten gelegt, als Liszt seine einfache Transkription der beliebtesten Romanze daraus vornahm. Das Klavierarrangement wird aus diesem Grund oft unter Liszts Liedtranskriptionen aufgeführt. Mancher Sammler alter Grammophonplatten bzw. -aufnahmen wird Die Rose als „Rose softly blooming“ kennen—ein im englischen Sprachraum seinerzeit allgegenwärtiges Salonlied.
