Le mancenillier 'La sérénade', RO142 Op 11

? 1849/50; published in Paris in 1851; alternative titles: La sérénade; West-Indian Serenade

The Manchineel Tree (‘a tropical American tree with poisonous latex’) provided the inspiration for the fourth of his Parisian ‘hits’, though this was not published until 1851. Like Bamboula, Le Bananier and La Savane it draws on Gottschalk’s reminiscences of his New Orleans childhood.

Le Mancenillier («arbre tropical américain au latex vénéneux») fournit l’inspiration du quatrième de ses succès parisiens, bien qu’il n’ait pas été publié avant 1851. Comme Bamboula, Le Bananier et La Savane, cette pièce puise son inspiration dans les souvenirs d’enfant de Gottschalk de la Nouvelle-Orléans.

Der Manzenillabaum („ein Baum der amerikanischen Tropen, der giftigen Latex absondert“) lieferte die Inspiration für den vierten seiner Pariser „Hits“, der erst 1851 veröffentlicht wurde. Wie Bamboula, Le Bananier und La Savane bezieht sich das Stück auf Gottschalks Erinnerungen an seine Kindheit in New Orleans.
