Das Liedchen von der Ruhe, Op 52 No 3

author of text

Another strophic setting that perfectly conveys the sense of inner calm and peace that the poet imagines finding in the arms of his beloved. In terms of its undemanding and uncomplicated fluency, free of all rhythmic/phrasal angularities, harmonic surprises or self-concious point-making, it makes a refreshing contrast to Beethoven’s many hard-fought musical battles.

Cette autre mise en musique strophique véhicule parfaitement le sentiment de calme et de paix intérieure que le poète imagine découvrir dans les bras de sa bien-aimée. De par sa fluidité naturelle et simple, dénuée de toute angularité de rythme et de phrase, de toute surprise harmonique et de tout point appuyé, ce lied offre un contraste rafraîchissant avec les nombreuses autres batailles musicales, âprement disputées, de Beethoven.

Diese ebenfalls strophische Vertonung vermittelt perfekt das Gefühl innerer Ruhe und Friedlichkeit, die der Dichter in den Armen seiner Liebsten zu finden erwartet. Auf Grund seiner anspruchslosen, unkomplizierten Flüssigkeit – frei von Ecken und Kanten in Rhythmus und Phrasierung, harmonischen Überraschungen und zwanghafter Pointenhascherei – steht es in erfrischendem Kontrast zu den vielen musikalischen Schlachten. die Beethoven mühevoll ausgefochten hat.
