Mephisto-Polka, S217ii

composer
1883; alternative text

 
The Polka has two texts: one, here, simple and direct in its language; the alternative so replete with decorative ossia passages as to sound almost another work altogether.

from notes by Leslie Howard © 1999

Il existe deux textes de la Polka: l’un, interprété ici, est de langage simple, direct; l’autre regorge tant de passages ossia décoratifs que l’on pourrait croire à une œuvre totalement différente.

extrait des notes rédigées par Leslie Howard © 1999
Français: Hypérion

Die Polka existiert in zwei Fassungen: Die eine ist vom Ausdruck her schlicht und geradlinig; die Alternative ist so reich an dekorativen Ossiapassagen, daß sie fast wie ein völlig anderes Werk klingt.
