My native land

author of text
untitled poem in Der Salon, i, 1834
translator of text
questionable attribution

My native land dates from 1895 and sets a Heine poem in an anonymous English translation (possibly adapted from a translation by Eduard Lassen): Ives was fond of the poem and made two settings—this one from 114 Songs is the earlier. The themes of dreaming and attachment to home always drew a sympathetic response from him.

My native land («Mon pays natal», 1895) présente un poème de Heine dans une traduction anglaise anonyme (adaptation possible d’une traduction d’Eduard Lassen). Ives adorait ce poème, dont il réalisa deux mises en musique—celle des 114 Songs est la première. Les thèmes du rêve, de l’attachement à son chez-soi suscitèrent toujours une réaction bienveillante de la part d’Ives.

My native land datiert von 1895 und vertont ein Heine-Gedicht in einer anonymen englischen Übersetzung (wahrscheinlich aus einer Übertragung von Eduard Lassen adaptiert). Ives liebte dieses Gedicht besonders und vertonte es zwei Mal—die auf dieser CD zu hörende Fassung in 114 Songs ist die frühere. Er reagierte von jeher sympathisch auf die Themen des Träumens und der Bindung zur Heimat.
