6ème Ballade, RO14 Op 85

composer
? 1860s; published in Mainz in 1877

 
Here is Gottschalk at his most ingratiating. It has neither the originality nor individuality of what we may call his South American music—and is certainly not on a par with the Ballades by Chopin—but is nevertheless a charming example of the fashion of the time. It was published posthumously.

from notes by Jeremy Nicholas © 1990

Voici Gottschalk à son plus flatteur. Elle n’a ni l’originalité ni l’individualité de ce que nous pouvons appeler sa musique sud-américaine et elle n’égale certainement pas les Ballades de Chopin—mais elle représente néanmoins un exemple charmant de la mode de l’époque. Elle fut publiée après la mort du compositeur.

Hier zeigt sich Gottschalk von seiner einschmeichelndsten Seite. Das Stück besitzt weder die Originalität noch die Individualität der Werke, die wir als seine südamerikanische Musik bezeichnen dürfen—und kann es gewiß nicht mit Chopins Balladen aufnehmen—, ist aber dennoch ein charmantes Beispiel für die damals vorherrschende Mode. Es wurde posthum veröffentlicht.
