Introduction and Variations on a German national air in E major 'Der Schweizerbub', KKIVa/4


Innocent and harmless, born of childhood and untroubled times, the variations on a German national air (1826) – actually not so much German as Tyrolean Austrian – can be seen as a preparation, in kind and method, for the larger scale canvas of the Là ci darem variations, Op 2 (1827).

from notes by Ateş Orga © 1991

Les variations sur un air nationaliste allemand (1826) – pas tant allemand que tyrolien – innocentes et sans malice, nées d’une enfance paisible, servent en quelque sorte de préparation, par leur style et leur méthode, au canevas plus ample des variations «Là ci darem», op.2 (1827).

Français: Hypérion

Unschuldig und harmlos, geboren aus der Erinnerung an Kindheit und sorglose Zeiten, können die Variationen über ein deutsches Lied (1826) – „Der Schweizerbub“ – als formale und methodische Vorübung zu dem größeren musikalischen Gemälde der „Là ci darem“-Variationen, Op. 2 (1827) gesehen werden.
