Liebeslied 'Widmung, von Robert Schumann', S566a

Liebeslied; No 1 of Myrthen, Op 25
after 1848; short draft

The simple version of Schumann's Widmung (Liebeslied op 25/1) which follows is in a completely different character from the very popular published version. The manuscript of the simpler version, which adheres more closely to Schumann's text, is located in the Library of Congress, and has been published in recent times in America.

La version simple de la Widmung (Liebeslied, op.25/1) de Schumann, proposée ici, et la très populaire version publiée ne possèdent en rien le même caractère. Le manuscrit de la version simplifiée, qui adhère plus étroitement au texte schumannien, est conservé à la Library of Congress et a été récemment publié en Amérique.

Die darauf folgende schlichte Fassung von Schumanns Widmung (Liebeslied op. 25/1) hat einen völlig anderen Charakter als die sehr populäre veröffentlichte Version. Das Manuskript der schlichteren Version, das sich enger an Schumanns Komposition hält, befindet sich in der Library of Congress in Washington D.C. und wurde jüngst in den USA veröffentlicht.
