Frühlingsglaube

March 20, 2016

“Frühlingsglaube (Faith in Spring),” a poem by Johann Ludwig Uhland set to music by Franz Schubert, sung by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, accompanied by Gerald Moore.

“Nun muß sich alles, alles wenden.
Die Welt wird schöner mit jedem Tag,
Man weiß nicht, was noch werden mag,
Das Blühen will nicht enden.
Es blüht das fernste, tiefste Tal:
Nun, armes Herz, vergiß der Qual!
Nun muß sich alles, alles wenden.”

“Now everything, everything must change.
The world becomes more beautiful with each day,
One does not know what may yet happen,
The blooming doesn’t want to end.
The farthest, deepest valley blooms:
Now, poor dear, forget the pain!
Now everything, everything must change.”

Im Frühling

March 20, 2016

“Im Frühling (In Spring),” the poetry of Eduard Mörike set to music by Hugo Wolf, sung by Elisabeth Schwarzkopf. The accompanist may be Gerald Moore.

“Der Sonnenblume gleich steht mein Gemüte offen,
Sehnend,
Sich dehnend
In Lieben und Hoffen.
Frühling, was bist du gewillt?
Wann werd ich gestillt?”

“The sunflower opens as does my heart,
Longing,
Expanding
In love and hope.
Spring, what is your intent?
When will my thirst be quenched?”

Translation by Charles L. Cingolani
