Franz Schubert: Erster Verlust (Ian Bostridge, tenor; Julius Drake, piano)
Ah, who will bring back those days,
those days of first love?
Ah, who will bring back but one hour
of that sweet time?
Alone I nurture my wound
and, forever renewing my lament,
mourn my lost happiness.
Ah, who will bring back those fair days,
that sweet time?
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
(translated by Richard Wigmore)
