Vision 'Étude', RO295 Op posth.

composer
1868/9; published in Rio de Janeiro in circa 1870

 
The three productive months spent in San Isidro during the early part of 1869 saw Gottschalk reverting to his earlier European style (see Impromptu and Caprice élégiaque). The outstanding surviving works from this period are the Grand Scherzo (recorded on CD 2), Tremolo (CD 5), Hercule (CD 3) and this, one of the composer’s most lovely effusions. Its constant flow of right-hand semiquavers (pp and murmurando), subtle harmonies and long-breathed melody put one in mind of Fauré. Only recently rediscovered, Vision makes one look with renewed admiration at the diversity of Gottschalk’s multi-faceted output.

Au cours des trois mois fructueux passés à San Isidro au début 1869 (voir Impromptu et Caprice élégiaque), Gottschalk revint au style européen du début de sa carrière. Les œuvres remarquables de cette période ayant survécu sont le Grand Scherzo (enregistré dans le CD 2), Tremolo (CD 5), Hercule (CD 3) et la présente Vision, l’une des plus séduisantes effusions du compositeur. Le flux continu des doubles croches à la main droite (pp et murmurando), les subtiles harmonies et l’ampleur de la courbe mélodique évoquent Fauré. Récemment redécouverte, cette pièce incite à considérer avec une admiration renouvelée la diversité de la production polymorphe de Gottschalk.

Während der drei produktiven Monate, die er am Anfang des Jahres 1869 in San Isidro verbrachte (siehe Impromptu und Caprice élégiaque, weiter unten), kehrte Gottschalk zu seinem früheren, europäischen Stil zurück. Die hervorragenden überlieferten Werke dieser Zeit sind das Grand Scherzo (aufgenommen auf CD Nr. 2), Tremolo (Nr. 5), Hercule (Nr. 3) und dieses Werk, eine der lieblichsten Schöpfungen des Komponisten. Der ununterbrochene Fluss von Sechzehnteln in der rechten Hand (pp und murmurando), die raffinierten Harmonien und die ausgedehnte Melodie erinnern an Fauré. Vision wurde erst kürzlich wiederentdeckt und lässt den Hörer das verschiedenartige und facettenreiche Schaffen Gottschalks aufs Neue bewundern.
