An ***

O wag es nicht, mit mir zu scherzen

Abendbilder was composed during the two months before Wolf’s seventeenth birthday in March 1877. During the next two months he tackled An ***, an outspoken and pain-filled love poem. Here we find Wolf experimenting with a more direct emotional utterance. Both the pianistic gestures and the vocal lines suggest less a German Lied than a Tchaikovsky romance.

Abendbilder entstand in den zwei Monaten vor Wolfs 17. Geburtstag im März 1877. Während der nächsten zwei Monate arbeitete er an An ***, einem freimütigen, trauervollen Liebesgedicht. Hier experimentiert Wolf mit einem direkteren emotionalen Ausdruck. Sowohl die pianistischen Gesten als auch die Vokallinien suggerieren eher eine romance à la Tschaikowsky, als ein deutsches Lied.
