Die schöne Müllerin, D795

composer
October to November 1823
arranger
1926

 
Leopold Godowsky inlays Schubert’s innocence with ivory and gold, with a darkening and enriching chromaticism that has enraged artists (notably Sir Clifford Curzon) of a more puritan taste. Here, it must be admitted, Schubert takes second place, and whether you consider such hyphenation elevated or debased, richly perfumed or defiled, it is hard to resist such a lavish and bejewelled tribute.

from notes by Bryce Morrison © 1999

Hat Leopold Godowsky Schuberts Unschuld mit Einlegearbeiten aus Elfenbein und Gold versehen, mit einer verdüsternden, anreichernden Chromatik, die Künstler mit eher puritanischem Geschmack (insbesondere Sir Clifford Curzon) erbost hat. Hier nimmt Schubert zugegebenermaßen einen nachgeordneten Rang ein, und ob man eine solche Kopplung nun gutheißt oder herabsetzend findet, reich parfümiert oder verschandelt, fällt es doch schwer, einem derart üppigen, juwelenbesetzten Tribut zu widerstehen.
