Träume

Richard Wagner
(1813-83)



"Träume" ("Dreams"), a favorite little number on concert programs, is a song which Wagner wrote as "a study to 'Tristan und Isolde,' " and which was arranged for orchestra several years ago by Theodore Thomas, who has lent it an added charm and effect. The song is a miniature impression of "Tristan und Isolde," a mere sketch, yet drawn in exquisite line and infused with dreamy sentiment. It may have aided in depicting that mighty outburst of passion in the great music drama of Isolde’s love.
