Schnitterchor 'Pastorale – Schnitterchor aus Prometheus', S507a

composer
circa 1850; first version

 
The first draft of a piano version of the Schnitterchor (Reapers' Chorus) from the Prometheus Choruses is part of a very messy manuscript which continues with the opening of a piano transcription of the following chorus – the Winzerchor. The final version is actually based on a later version of the choruses themselves and avoids some of the unnecessary complications of this first effort.

from notes by Leslie Howard © 1999

La première esquisse d’une version pianistique du Schnitterchor («Chœur des moissonneurs») des Chœurs de Prométhée se trouve dans un manuscrit très embrouillé, qui se poursuit avec l’ouverture d’une transcription pour piano du chœur suivant – le Winzerchor. La version finale se fonde, en réalité, sur une version ultérieure des chœurs mêmes et supprime quelques-unes des inutiles complications de ce premier essai.

Français: Hypérion

Der erste Entwurf einer Klavierfassung des Schnitterchors aus den Chören zu Herders Entfesseltem Prometheus ist Bestandteil eines sehr unordentlichen Manuskripts, das mit der Eröffnung einer Klaviertranskription des folgenden Winzerchors fortfährt. Die Fassung letzter Hand fußt übrigens auf einer späteren Version der Chöre selbst und vermeidet einige unnötige Schwierigkeiten des vorliegenden ersten Entwurfs.
