Radieuse 'Grande valse de concert', RO218 Op 72

composer
? 1863/4; published in Boston in 1865 under pseudonym Seven Octaves; piano four hands
arranger

 
Robert Offergeld’s catalogue of Gottschalk’s works tells us that the solo piano version as heard here was arranged by one H Maylath, though the music bears no such attribution. The original work for piano four hands (RO217) was published in Boston in 1865. It was one of many Gottschalk pieces that appeared originally under the name ‘Paul Ernest’. Many pieces by ‘Ernest’, ‘Seven Octaves’, and other Gottschalk pseudonyms, were dedicated ‘To My Dear Friend L M Gottschalk’. The innocent gaiety and irrepressible exuberance of Radieuse, however, surely merit no such bashfulness.

Selon le catalogue de Gottschalk établi par Robert Offergeld, la présente version pour piano solo fut arrangée par un certain H. Maylath—la musique, elle, ne porte cependant aucune attribution de ce genre. Publiée à Boston en 1865, l’œuvre originale pour piano à quatre mains (RO217) fut l’une de ces nombreuses pièces de Gottschalk d’abord parues sous le nom de «Paul Ernest». Maintes œuvres d’«Ernest» et de «Seven Octaves», entre autres pseudonymes de Gottschalk, furent dédiées «To my Dear Friend L. M. Gottschalk» [«À mon cher ami L. M. Gottschalk»]. L’innocente gaieté et l’irrépressible exubérance de Radieuse ne méritent pourtant pas une telle pudeur.

Français: Hypérion

In Robert Offergelds Katalog von Gottschalks Werken steht, dass die hier eingespielte Fassung für Soloklavier von einem gewissen H. Maylath stammen würde, auch wenn die Musik die Annahme nicht rechtfertigt. Die originale Fassung für vierhändiges Klavier (RO217) erschien 1865 in Boston im Druck. Sie gehört zu den zahlreichen Stücken, die Gottschalk ursprünglich unter dem Namen „Paul Ernest“ veröffentlichte. Viele Stücke von „Ernest“, „Seven Octaves“ und anderen Gottschalk-Pseudonymen wurden „Meinem lieben Freund L. M. Gottschalk“ gewidmet. Die unschuldige Fröhlichkeit und der unbändige Überschwang von Radieuse verdienen doch sicherlich nicht so eine Schüchternheit.
