Misc. Comments

Pauline Viardot is believed to have set twelve poems by Eduard Mörike in all; ten were ready by mid-April 1865. See Turgenev, Pis’ma, vol. 6, pp. 117, 282-3; Ludwig Pietsch, ‘Pauline Viardot-Garcia. Persönliche Erinnerungen’, Velhagen und Klasings Monatshefte, vol. XIX, book 1, 19 October 1904, p. 215 in pp. 200-16. In addition to the items mentioned in this catalogue, I.S. Turgenev prepared a manuscript text for a ‘Chanson du page (imitée de l’allemand de Mörike)’. See Mazon, pp. 73-4; I.S. Turgenev (1818—1883—1958). Stat’i i materialy, ed. M.P. Alekseyev, Orël, 1960, p. 237.

(The copy of No.2 in the Women Composers Collection at the University of Michigan includes an English text written in afterwards by the composer. Heitmann cites a private manuscript of Nixe Binsefuß. Another at Harvard shows that Pauline Viardot originally intended this song to be no. 6 in her planned collection of Mörike settings).
