Carl Maria von Webers Schlummerlied mit Arabesken, S454
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Weber’s simple and moving Lullaby is the basis for a set of the most delicate variations. It is strange that Liszt wrote so few formal sets of variations when the techniques of variation form such a staple of his art, and similarly strange that when, as here, he writes a real set of variations he eschews thus to entitle them; many of his transcriptions, especially from songs, are bona fide sets of variations, and had they been published as such might have avoided the customary contumely which was long applied to transcriptions of all sorts.
