Phantasie aus Don Juan
EnglishDeutsch
The Phantasie aus Don Juan instructs the pianist to imitate the sound of a harp. Its plangent melody and verbal repetitions such as ‘Im Herzen! Im Herzen!’ also suggest a folksong, and though the text may be Spanish in origin, the character of deep melancholy and personal identification—there is no doubt that the singer’s own heart has been caught like many others in the fishergirl’s net—was one that Mahler was to exploit with increasing success throughout his composing career.
