Ich atmet' einen linden Duft!

author of text

Ich atmet’ einen linden Duft is an expression of serene happiness that seems to be inherent in its implied orientalism, later to be echoed of course in the Chinese-based songs of his great orchestral song cycle/symphony Das Lied von der Erde.

from notes by Roger Vignoles 2004

Ich atmet’ einen linden Duft handelt sich um eine Äußerung gelassenen Glücks, die dem implizierten Orientalismus des Liedes innezuwohnen scheint, einem Orientalismus, der natürlich später in Mahlers auf dem Chinesischen basierenden großen orchestralen Liederzyklus/Symphonie Das Lied von der Erde widerklingen sollte.
