Nicht wiedersehen!
EnglishDeutsch
A grief-stricken tread pervades Nicht Wiedersehen!, which describes the situation, common to many folksong traditions, where a lover returns from a journey to find his sweetheart has died in his absence. Here again the mature Mahler is foreshadowed, in the poignant major-minor shifts and melody in parallel thirds as well as the dissonant and agonized repetitions of ‘Ade!’.
