Einsam bin ich, nicht alleine – Volkslied aus dem Schauspiel Preciosa von Carl Maria von Weber, S453

1820; incidental music to Preciosa (Wolff), J279

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.

from notes by Leslie Howard © 1992

Pourquoi Listz a-t-il qualifié d’opéra la musique de Weber pour Preciosa, reste un mystère—en effet la forme de l’oeuvre n’est pas très différente de celle des chœurs du Prométhée de Liszt—mais nous ne pouvons que le remercier d’avoir attiré notre attention sur cette charmante aria.

Français: Martine Erussard

Warum Liszt die Musik Webers zu Preciosa eine Oper nannte, ist schwer zu sagen—die Form des Werkes unterscheidet sich kaum von den Prometheus-Chören Liszts—jedoch können wir ihm dankbar sein, daß er uns auf diese charmante Arie aufmerksam gemacht hat.
