Madeleine 'Étude', RO140

composer
? 1869; published in Rio de Janeiro in 1870

 
This unusual and haunting study was dedicated by Gottschalk ‘for the album of my old friend and companion from Paris, Achille Arnaud, with fond memories’. Its wistful tenor theme under continuous semiquaver triplets is one of Gottschalk’s loveliest and most memorable. (The title page spells the name as above; the cover of the music lists it as ‘Madelaine’.)

Gottschalk a dédié cette étude lancinante qui sort des sentiers battus «pour l’album de mon vieil ami et compagnon de Paris, Achille Arnaud, avec de chaleureux souvenirs». Son thème nostalgique au ténor énoncé sous des triolets continus de doubles croches est l’un des plus mémorables, des plus charmants de Gottschalk. (À noter que la page de titre épelle le titre tel qu’indiqué ci-dessous; la couverture indique «Madelaine».)

Diese ungewöhnliche und eindringliche Etüde widmete Gottschalk dem „Album meines alten Freundes und Kumpanen aus Paris, Achille Arnaud, mit schönen Erinnerungen“. Das trauervolle Tenorthema unterhalb der fortlaufenden Sechzehnteltriolen ist eine der schönsten und bedeutendsten Melodien Gottschalks. (Auf der Titelseite ist der Name wie oben geschrieben; später ist er als „Madelaine“ verzeichnet.)
