  • Werksbeschreibung

    Piano accompaniment by Oresta Cybriwsky of the Song “Songs my mother taught me” by Antonín Dvořák from 1880.

    Když mne stará matka zpívat, zpívat učívala,
    podivno, že často, často slzívala.
    A teď také pláčem snědé líce mučím,
    když cigánské děti hrát a zpívat, hrát a zpívat učím!

    German singable translation:

    Als die alte Mutter mich noch lehrte singen,
    Tränen in den Wimpern gar so oft ihr hingen.
    Jetzt, wo ich die Kleinen selber üb’ im Sange,
    rieselt’s in den Bart oft, rieselt’s von der braunen Wange.

    English singable translation.

    Songs my mother taught me, In the days long vanished;
    Seldom from her eyelids were the teardrops banished.
    Now I teach my children, each melodious measure.
    Oft the tears are flowing, oft they flow from my memory’s treasure.
