Cäcilie (Strauss) – Wikipedia
The marriage of Richard Strauss and Pauline de Ahna has gone down in musical history as a model example of the attraction of opposites. Strausswho described himself as “phlegmatic,” was on the surface an unlikely match for srrauss high-strung soprano de Ahna, whose temper was well known in late nineteenth-century German musical circles.
Strauss ‘ through-composed musical setting of Heinrich Hart ‘s poem cacilje once denies the poem’s strophic construction and confirms the passion of its content.
The voice-and-piano version is in the key of E major; Strauss transposed the song to E flat major when he orchestrated it ina decision that permits the heroic associations of this key straauss enrich the meaning of Hart’s bold profession of love.
The music of the first text strophe offers an adventuresome major-mode context for the passionate images of the text: Strauss avoids congruity between poetic lines and musical phrases, a free approach to the text that yields an outpouring of emotional expression. The shift to minor mode at the beginning caxilie the second text strophe and the harmonic volatility throughout reflect a change in the poetic imagery to the darker side of love: Likewise, the sunny return to the major mode at the end of the second text strophe predicts the expansion of the imagery of third strophe into ideal realms, to which one travels in a blaze of light to the heights of the blessed creation.
