“Wie ich dich liebe, Du meine Sonne, ich kann mit Worten Dir’s nicht sagen. Nur meine Sehnsucht kann ich Dir klagen und meine Liebe”.
Mahler’s own text to the Adagietto in his 5th symphony. What came first, music or lyrics?
Poor guy, wasn’t easy to win the heart of the cynical Alma, but I suspect it was a creative force in his crazy mind, resulting in a bunch of lovely symphonies. Thank you for the music, Gustav!
