Franz Liszt Années de pèlerinage
Première année: Suisse
1. Chapelle de Guillaume Tell (Wilhelm−Tell-Kapelle) - Liszts Motto: „Einer für alle – alle für einen.“ (Schiller)
2. Au lac de Wallenstadt (Am Walensee)“Thy contrasted lake / With the wild world I dwell in is a thing / Which warns me, with its stillness, to forsake / Earth's troubled waters for a purer spring.” – (Byron: Childe Harolds Pilgrimage)
3. Pastorale
4. Au bord d'une source (An einer Quelle) – „In säuselnder Kühle / beginnen die Spiele / Der jungen Natur.“ (Schiller)
5. Orage (Sturm) –“But where of ye, O tempests! is the goal? / Are ye like those within the human breast? / Or do ye find, at length, like eagles, some high nest?”(Byron: Childe Harolds Pilgrimage)
6. Vallée d'Obermann (Das Obermann-Tal) – „Que veux-je? Que suis-je? Que demander à la nature?“ (Senancour: Obermann)“Could I embody and unbosom now / That which is most within me, --could I wreak / My thoughts upon expression, and thus throw / Soul--heart--mind--passions--feelings--strong or weak-- / All that I would have sought, and all I seek, / Bear, know, feel--and yet breathe--into one word, / And that one word were Lightning, I would speak; / But as it is, I live and die unheard, / With a most voiceless thought, sheathing it as a sword.” (Byron Childe Harolds Pilgrimage)
7. Eglogue (Hirtengesang) - "The morn is up again, the dewy morn, / With breath all incense, and with cheek all bloom, / Laughing the clouds away with playful scorn, / And living as if earth contained no tomb!" (Byron Childe Harold).
8. Le mal du pays (Heimweh)
9. Les cloches de Genève: Nocturne (Die Glocken von Genf: Nocturne)
