Zweites ABONNEMENT-CONCERT im Saale des Gewandhauses zu Leipzig. Donnerstag, den 15. October 1863. Erster Theil. Symphonie (Nr. 4, Dmoll) von Robert Schumann. Recitativ und Arie von Julius Benedict, gesungen von Fräulein Euphrosyne Parepa aus London. (Zum ersten Male.) What shall I sing your heart anew to win? What flights adventure, bow once more begin? Shall I enchant you with some rustic lay Born where the mountains melt in heav’n away. Perchance a breath of nature sweet but rüde, Like the fresh air of morn raay suit your weary mood. O green are the fields Though the dawning be chill, And the waters like jewels Flow down froin the hill, And the bells tinkle low In the track of the herd, And the Echo is sweeter Than brook or than bird. Ah! come away from the city Where life is untrue, And a cloud between earth And the Ether so blue, To the land of the Eagle, To the land of the snow, To renew our lost youth. Still cold, still mute; — nay, then Suppose I try a strain Of deep Italian melody, Such as Corinna to her lute might sing, When her whole heart treinbles on every string. Perchance your grief and pity I may move, If I can only teil her deep impassioned love.
