Meeresstille – Lied von Fr. Schubert, S557b

circa 1837; first version

This transcription is based upon one very familiar songs—Meeresstille (‘Sea Calm’, D216), in which Liszt manages to convey motionless water and dread at the same time with deep tremolos and arpeggios (this is the earlier version of a transcription which was later modified slightly for the collection of twelve transcriptions, S558).

Cette transcription est basée sur un chant très familier: Meeresstille, D216 («Le calme de la mer»), dans laquelle Liszt parvient à donner l’impression de l’eau qui stagne et, en même temps, de la crainte, avec des trémolos et des arpèges profonds—ce qui constitue la première version d’une transcription légèrement modifiée plus tard pour la collection de douze transcriptions, S558.

Meeresstille (D216) ist ein Stück, in dem es Liszt gelingt, mittels tiefer Tremoli und Arpeggien das bewegungslose Wasser und zugleich die Furcht darzustellen—dies ist die frühere Fassung einer Transkription, die später für die Sammlung von zwölf Transkriptionen (S558) leicht abgeändert wurde
