Kathleen Ferrier & Bruno Walter - Kindertotenlieder 4 - Oft denk' ich

Oft denk' ich, sie sind nur ausgegangen!
Bald werden sie wieder nach Hause gelangen!
Der Tag ist schön! O sei nicht bang!
Sie machen nur einen weiten Gang!

Jawohl, sie sind nur ausgegangen
Und werden jetzt nach Hause gelangen!
O, sei nicht bang, der Tag is schön!
Sie machen nur den Gang zu jenen Höh'n!

Sie sind uns nur vorausgegangen
Und werden nicht wieder nach Hause verlangen!
Wir holen sie ein auf jenen Höh'n
Im Sonnenschein!
Der Tag is schön auf jenen Höh'n!
___________________________________________

Often I think that they have only stepped out -
and that soon they will reach home again!
The day is fair - O don't be afraid!
They are only taking a long walk.

Yes: they have only stepped out
and will now return home!
O don't be anxious - the day is fair!
They are only taking a walk to those hills.

They have simply gone on ahead:
they will not wish to return home.
We'll catch up to them on those hills
in the sunshine!
The day is fair on those hills

Myra Hess plays Brahms Intermezzo opus 117 no. 1 (rec 1941)

yt-account: pianopera


Johannes Brahms (1833-1897):

from Drei Intermezzi opus 117 (1892),
1. Andante moderato in E flat major.

Played by Myra Hess (recorded in 1941). She plays it with tenderness, expression, spirituality, purity and simplicity, but without eroticism, narcissism, mannerism or sentimentality.

"On a smaller and more intimate scale than the surrounding sets of Op. 116, Op. 118 and Op. 119, the composer described these pieces as "lullabies to my sorrows". Here we find Brahms at his most tender and introspective, with only one outburst (in the third Intermezzo) of the characteristic Brahmsian fieryness. The Intermezzi were inspired by a Scottish poem from Herder's Volkslieder, and bear this inscription:

Schlaf sanft mein Kind, schlaf sanft und Schön !
Mich dauert's sehr, dich weinen sehn.

(Sleep softly my child, sleep softly and well !
It hurts my heart to see you weeping.)"

Piano Society.

Painting by Berthe Morisot (1841-1895)

Erster Akt
Chor der Gefangenen -
O welche Lust!

Text:

GEFANGENEN
O, welche Lust!
in freier Luft den Atem
leicht zu heben, O, welche Lust!
nur hier, nur hier ist Leben,
der Kerker eine Gruft, eine Gruft!

ERSTER GEFANGENE
Wir wollen mit Vertrauen
auf Gottes Hülfe,
auf Gottes Hülfe bauen,
die Hoffnung flüstert sanft mir zu,
wir werden frei, wir finden Ruh,
wir finden Ruh'.

GEFANGENEN
O Himmel Rettung,
welch ein Glück,
o Freiheit, o Freiheit,
kehrst du zurück?

ZWEITE GEFANGENE
Sprecht leise, haltet euch zurück,
wir sind belauscht mir
Ohr und Blick.

Sprecht leise, haltet euch zurück,
wir sind belauscht mir
Ohr und Blick.

PRISONERS' CHORUS
Oh what joy, in the open air
Freely to breathe again!
Up here alone is life!
The dungeon is a grave.

FIRST PRISONER
We shall with all our faith
Trust in the help of God!
Hope whispers softly in my ears!
We shall be free, we shall find peace.

ALL THE OTHERS
Oh Heaven! Salvation! Happiness!
Oh Freedom! Will you be given us?

SECOND PRISONER
Speak softly! Be on your guard!
We are watched with eye and ear.

ALL
Speak softly! Be on your guard!
We are watched with eye and ear.
Oh what joy, in the open air
Freely to breathe again!
Up here alone is life.
Speak softly! Be on your guard!
We are watched with eye and ear.
