Phantasie aus Don Juan

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.

Bei dem Phantasie aus Don Juan wird der Pianist angewiesen, den Klang einer Harfe nachzuahmen. Die getragene Melodie und die Wortwiederholungen wie etwa „Im Herzen! Im Herzen!“ suggerieren ebenfalls ein Volkslied, und obwohl der Text spanischen Ursprungs sein mag, war es dieser Charakter tiefer Melancholie und persönlicher Identifikation (es gibt keinen Zweifel, daß das Herz des Sängers selbst genauso wie das vieler anderer im Netz des Fischermädchens gefangen ist), auf den Mahler im Laufe seiner Komponistenlaufbahn immer wieder mit zunehmendem Erfolg zurückgreifen sollte.
