Puszta Wehmut – A puszta keserve, S246

published 1885

Puszta Wehmuth (‘Longing for the Steppes’) is apparently based on a work by the Countess Ludmilla Gizycka, née Zamoyska, although no mention is made of this in the original publication. Zamoyska’s work, in turn, is based on a poem by Lenau. The piece is a sort of miniature rhapsody with rather simple texture with the characteristic slow (Lassan) and fast (Friska) sections, and with a reprise of the opening flourishes at the end.

La source de Puszta Wehmuth («Rêver des steppes») est apparemment un ouvrage de la Comtesse Ludmilla Gizycka, née Zamoyska, bien qu’il n’en soit fait aucune mention dans la publication originale. L’ouvrage de Zamoyska est lui-même basé sur un poème de Lenau. Le morceau est une sorte de rhapsodie miniature, à la texture plutôt simple avec les caractéristiques sections lentes (Lassan) et rapides (Friska), et avec, à la fin, une reprise des fanfares de l’introduction.

Puszta Wehmuth beruht offenbar auf einem Werk der Gräfin Ludmilla Gizycka, geborene Zamoyska, obwohl davon in der Erstausgabe nicht die Rede ist. Das Werk der Zamoyska wiederum beruht auf einem Gedicht von Lenau. Das Stück ist eine Art Rhapsodie im Kleinformat von eher schlichter Struktur mit den üblichen langsamen (Lassan) und schnellen (Friska) Abschnitten und einer Reprise der einleitenden Gesten am Ende.
