Leo Slezak sings Schubert's song while I'm modeling a big ear in clay :) -
Leo Slezak singt Schuberts Ständchen aus dem Schwanengesang, während ich ein großes Ohr in Ton modelliere.
Lyrics translation:
My songs beckon softly
through the night to you;
below in the quiet grove,
Come to me, beloved!

The rustle of slender leaf tips whispers
in the moonlight;
Do not fear the evil spying
of the betrayer, my dear.

Do you hear the nightingales call?
Ah, they beckon to you,
With the sweet sound of their singing
they beckon to you for me.

They understand the heart's longing,
know the pain of love,
They calm each tender heart
with their silver tones.

Let them also stir within your breast,
beloved, hear me!
Trembling I wait for you,
Come, please me!
