Tune of the Day: Ich grolle nicht

by Schumann, transcribed for flute and piano

This Lied is taken from Dichterliebe (“A Poet's Love”), the best-known song cycle by Robert Schumann. Composed in 1840, it sets to music 16 short poems by the famous German poet Heinrich Heine.

I bear no grudge, though my heart breaks.
Love lost forever, I bear no grudge.
Though you shine in diamond splendor,
no ray falls into the night of your heart,
I have long known it.
I truly saw you in my dreams
And saw the night in your heart,
And saw the snake that devours your heart.
I saw, my love, how very miserable you are.
