Tchaikovsky composed a set of six romances for voice and piano, Op. 6, in late 1869. The last of these songs is the melancholy "None but the Lonely Heart". It was set to Lev Mei's poem "The Harpist's Song," which in turn was translated from Goethe's Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship. Tchaikovsky dedicated this piece to Alina Khvostova.
Isaac Stern (1920 -- 2001) was a Ukrainian-born violinist. He was renowned for his recordings and for discovering new musical talent.
NONE BUT THE LONELY HEART
None but the lonely heart Can know my sadness Alone and parted Far from joy and gladness Heaven's boundless arch I see Spread out above me O(h) what a distance drear to one Who loves me None but the lonely heart Can know my sadness Alone and parted Far from joy and gladness Alone and parted far From joy and gladness My senses fail A burning fire Devours me None but the lonely heart Can know my sadness
