S'il est un charmant gazon, S284 Second version

composer
circa 1859; LW N25
author of text
Rêve d'amour

 
In both versions of S’il est un charmant gazon Liszt omits Hugo’s second stanza, with its wish for a loving and noble breast to become the pillow for the beloved. A near-constant murmuring of Nature’s gentle voices in the piano gives way to breaks in the instrumental sound for the wish at the end of each stanza.

Dans les deux versions de S’il est un charmant gazon, Liszt omet la deuxième strophe de Victor Hugo, avec son désir qu’un sein bien aimant et noble devienne le coussin où se pose le front de la bien-aimée. Le murmure presque constant des douces voix de la Nature au piano laisse place à des ruptures dans la partie instrumentale correspondant au souhait qui conclut chaque strophe.

In beiden Versionen von S’il est un charmant gazon lässt Liszt die zweite Strophe von Hugo aus, in der eine liebende und noble Brust zum Kissen für den Geliebten werden soll. Auf ein fast konstantes Gemurmel der sanften Stimmen der Natur im Klavier folgen einige instrumentale Pausen, in denen die Wünsche jeweils am Ende der Strophen geäußert werden.
