Wo die Zitronen blühn, Op 364
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The southern warmth that radiates from Wo die Zitronen blühn (‘Where the Lemon Trees Blossom’) reflects the fact that Strauss wrote it for a concert tour of Italy in 1874. He first conducted it in Milan under the title Bella Italia (‘Beautiful Italy’). Its ultimate title comes from Mignon’s song from Goethe’s Wilhelm Meister – ‘Kennst du das Land, wo die Zitronen blühn?’.
