Lyubila ya 'Romance', S577i

1842; first version

There is perhaps just a little too much decoration in the first transcription of Lyubila ya by Michael Wielhorsky (1788–1856), and the sixteen-notes-to-the-bar accompaniment figuration was also much reduced in the second version. But the first has a number of harmonic piquancies which it would be a shame to lose by knowing only the second transcription of this sweet drawing-room melody.

Peut-être la première transcription de Lyubila ya, de Michael Wielhorsky (1788–1856), était-elle un peu trop décorée, car l’accompagnement-figuration de seize notes par mesure fut beaucoup réduit dans la seconde version. Mais ce premier jet recèle un certain nombre de piquants harmoniques qu’il serait dommage de perdre en ne connaissant que la seconde transcription de cette douce mélodie de salon.

Vielleicht ist die erste Transkription von Lyubila ya von Michael Wielhorski (1788–1856) etwas zu verziert, denn auch die begleitende Figuration mit sechzehn Noten je Takt wurde in der zweiten Version reduziert. Sie enthält jedoch einiges an harmonischer Würze, deren Verlust schade wäre, würde man lediglich die zweite Transkription dieser lieblichen Salonmelodie kennen.
