7ème Ballade, RO15 Op 87

? 1860s; published in Mainz in 1877

A sad, sweet poem (in E flat) with its reminiscences of Chopin but on a far more intimate scale, this Ballade was published after Gottschalk’s death by Nicolás Esperado (see the notes for CD 4) ‘sur Manuscrits originaux avec autorisation de sa famille’.

Un poème doux et triste (en mi bémol) avec son évocation de Chopin, mais à une échelle bien plus intime, cette Ballade fut publiée après la mort de Gottschalk par Nicolás Esperado (cf. les notes du CD 4) «sur Manuscrits originaux avec autorisation de la famille».

Ein trauriges, anrührendes Gedicht (in Es-Dur), das an Chopin erinnert, jedoch sehr viel intimer angelegt ist. Diese Ballade wurde nach Gottschalks Tod von Nicolás Esperado (siehe Kommentar zu CD 4) mit dem Kommentar „sur Manuscrits originaux avec autorisation de sa famille“ herausgegeben.
