lyrics

Andreas Herkenrath about "Nur wer sie kennt...":

“Die Melodie des langsamen Satzes aus Ludwig van Beethovens Klaviersonate „Pathétique“ eröffnet diese Komposition – gerade so wie den Originalsatz.

Doch es stimmt etwas nicht, und zwar ganz gewaltig. Überraschende Wendungen und mitunter krasse Einschnitte pflastern den Weg dieser Komposition. „Nur wer sie kennt…“, kommt diesen Klängen auf die Spur.

Sie, das ist die Sehnsucht, von der Johann Wolfgang von Goethe die Mignon singen lässt, sie, das sind Ludwig van Beethoven und Peter Tschaikowsky, die beide eben dieses Lied der Mignon vertonten, und sie, das ist auch die Frau, die Anlass dazu gab, dieses mysteriöse, ursprüngliche Lied zu schreiben, dessen Stimme im Lauf der Zeit verstummt ist.”
