Die Lorelei, S532

composer
1861; second version

 
Heine’s Die Lorelei tells the familiar story of the siren-like witch who haunts a rock in the river Rhine—Liszt’s dramatic setting (in either version) is vastly superior to the tawdry little Silcher version beloved of amateur children’s choruses, but the revised version is more subtle, less four-square, and there may even be a deliberate hint of the Tristan prelude in the introduction

from notes by Leslie Howard © 1992

Die Lorelei de Heine raconte l’histoire bien connue de la sorcière qui a pris la forme d’une sirène et hante un rocher sur le Rhin—la mise en musique dramatique de Liszt (dans les deux versions) est bien supérieure à la version médiocre de Silcher que les chœurs amateurs d’enfants aiment tant, mais la version révisée est plus subtile, moins définitive, et il peut même y avoir une allusion délibérée au prélude de Tristan dans l’introduction

Français: Alain Midoux

Die Lorelei von Heine erzählt die vertraute Geschichte von der Zauberin, die auf einem Felsen am Rhein ihr Unwesen treibt. Liszts dramatische Vertonung (in beiden Versionen) ist der bei Kinderchören so beliebten geschmacklosen kleinen Version von Silcher haushoch überlegen, doch wirkt die revidierte Fassung subtiler, weniger grob und weist in der Einleitung einen möglicherweise bewußten Verweis auf das Tristan-Vorspiel auf.
