Ich liebe dich, S542a
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The piano version of Ich liebe dich, with Rückert’s text (‘I love you, since I must, since I cannot otherwise …’) overlaid, remained unpublished until very recently although it may have been prepared for publication at the same time as the song (1860). It is one of Liszt’s freshest and simplest utterances.
