Mit deinen blauen Augen
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Eduard Lassen was born in Copenhagen in 1830 but was taken as an infant to Brussels where, at the age of only twelve, he enrolled at the Conservatory. In 1851 he won the Belgian Prix de Rome which enabled him to further his studies in both Germany and Italy, and, in Rome itself, to meet and become friends with Liszt. Lassen was later to succeed Liszt as Court Music Director at Weimar, a post he held until his retirement in 1895. As a composer, he was particularly known for his songs. Mit deinen blauen Augen (‘With your blue eyes’) is the fifth of five songs that Lassen dedicated to Duke Ernest of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, the brother-in-law of Queen Victoria.
