(R)* Tchaikovsky, None but the lonely Hearts (song 6), Op.6 No 6.
video edited by a.vullo
Tchaikovsky composed a set of six romances for voice and piano, Op. 6, in late 1869. The last of these songs, the melancholy None but the lonely heart (Russian: Нет, только тот, кто знал, Net, tolko tot, kto znal), is Tchaikovsky's most famous song, and one of his most popular compositions. It was composed 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.
*********************************************************
Goethe's German original: Nur wer die Sehnsucht kennt Weiß, was ich leide! Allein und abgetrennt Von aller Freude, Seh ich ans Firmament Nach jener Seite. Ach! der mich liebt und kennt, Ist in der Weite. Es schwindelt mir, es brennt Mein Eingeweide. Nur wer die Sehnsucht kennt Weiß, was ich leide!
**************************************************
An English translation: Only one who knows this longing Understands what I suffer! Alone and separated From all joy, I look to the vast horizon On every side. Oh! He who loves and knows me, Is far away. I feel dizzy, and it burns my insides. Only one who knows this longing Understands what I suffer!
