Nebel, TrV65

First line:
Du trüber Nebel, hüllst mir
1878; WoO47
author of text

Nebel sets a poem by Nikolaus Lenau, whose writings inspired Strauss’s first great success, the tone poem Don Juan. It is a not unsuccessful attempt at echt-German Romanticism, dark in colour and unrelieved in its melancholy, underpinned by a newly independent bass-line in the manner of Schubert.

from notes by Roger Vignoles © 2015

Nebel exprime en musique un poème de Nikolaus Lenau, dont les écrits inspirèrent à Strauss son premier grand succès, le poème symphonique Don Juan. Voilà une tentative assez réussie d’authentique romantisme allemand, de couleur sombre et constamment mélancolique, qu’étaye une ligne de basse nouvellement indépendante, à la Schubert.

Français: Hypérion

Nebel ist eine Vertonung eines Gedichts von Nikolaus Lenau, dessen Werke Strauss’ ersten großen Erfolg, seine Tondichtung Don Juan, inspiriert hatten. Er versuchte sich hiermit nicht ohne Erfolg mit dunkler Farbgebung und unablässiger Melancholie am romantischen Stil, dessen Fundament eine erstmals unabhängige Basslinie im Stile Schuberts ist.
