    Ständchen Op.17 No.2 by Richard Strauss

    and finally Walter Gieseking plays his own arrangement for piano solo 1927 and 1939 (0.00 and 5.31)




    Mach auf, mach auf, doch leise mein Kind,
    Um keinen vom Schlummer zu wecken.
    Kaum murmelt der Bach, kaum zittert im Wind
    Ein Blatt an den Büschen und Hecken.
    Drum leise, mein Mädchen, daß nichts sich regt,
    Nur leise die Hand auf die Klinke gelegt.

    Mit Tritten, wie Tritte der Elfen so sacht,
    Um über die Blumen zu hüpfen,
    Flieg leicht hinaus in die Mondscheinnacht,
    Zu mir in den Garten zu schlüpfen.
    Rings schlummern die Blüten am rieselnden Bach
    Und duften im Schlaf, nur die Liebe ist wach.

    Sitz nieder, hier dämmert's geheimnisvoll
    Unter den Lindenbäumen,
    Die Nachtigall uns zu Häupten soll
    Von unseren Küssen träumen,
    Und die Rose, wenn sie am Morgen erwacht,
    Hoch glühn von den Wonnenschauern der Nacht.

    (Adolf Friedrich Graf von Schack)


    Come out, come out, step lightly my love,
    Lest envious sleepers awaken,
    So still is the air, no leaf on the boughs above
    From its slumber is shaken.
    Then lightly, dear maiden, that none may catch,
    The tap of thy shoe, or the clink of the latch.

    On top toe, on tip toe as moon spirits might
    Wondering over the flowers
    Come softly down, through the radiant night
    To me in the rose hidden bowers
    The lilies are dreaming around the dim lake
    In odorous sleep, only love is awake.

    Come nearer, Ah, see how the moonbeams fall,
    Through the willow's drooping tresses
    The nightingales in the branches
    all shall dream of our caresses
    And the roses waking with morning light,
    Flush red, flush red, with the rapture born of the night.

    (Paul England)

    Renee Fleming -"Ah, non credea..."- La sonnambula Live 1988
    Fleming as most of us never heard her before, so light, I prefer the voice she had later in live.

    D. Fischer-Dieskau & P. Schreier "Herbstlied" Schumann



    Das Laub fällt von den Bäumen,
    Das zarte Sommerlaub,
    Das Leben mit seinen Träumen
    Zerfällt in Asch´ und Staub

    Die Vöglein traulich sangen
    Wie schweigt der Wald jetzt still!
    Die Lieb' ist fortgegangen,
    Kein Vöglein singen will.

    Die Liebe kehrt wohl wieder
    Im künft'gen lieben Jahr,
    Und alles tönt dann wieder,
    Was hier verklungen war.

    Der Winter sei willkommen,
    Sein Kleid ist rein und neu,
    Den Schmuck hat er genommen,
    Den Schmuck bewahrt er treu.
