Hermann Hesse: A dance by Chopin, 1901

A dance by Chopin sounds loudly in the ballroom,
A wild, riotous dance.
The windows gleam pallidly because of the weather,
The grand piano is adorned by a wilted wreath.

Un walzer di Chopin riempie la sala
una danza selvaggia e scatenata.
Alla fine pallido chiarore,
il pianoforte adorna un'appassita ghirlanda.

You the piano, I the violin,
Thus we play and do not stop
And wait full of fear, you and I,
Who shall be the first to break the enchantment.

Il piano tu, il violino io,
così suoniamo e non smettiamo
e attendiamo inquieti, tu e io,
chi per primo spezza la magia.

Who shall be the first to stop in the rhythm
And push the lights away,
And who shall first speak the question
For which there is no answer.

Chi per primo interrompe il ritmo
e scosta da sè le candele,
e chi per primo pone la domanda,
a cui non vi è risposta...



Eugène Delacroix  - Frédéric Chopin, 1838

Spargi ancora a profusone
su di me i gigli pallidi,
grandi gigli dei tuoi canti, rose rosse dei tuoi valzer.
E il respiro intessi greve
del tuo amore, che appassendo
dà profumo e del tuo orgoglio
garofani di fuoco flessuosi.

Ein Tanz von Chopin lärmt im Saal,
Ein wilder, zügelloser Tanz.
Die Fenster leuchten wetterfahl,
Den Flügel ziert ein welker Kranz.

Den Flügel du, die Geige ich,
So spielen wir und enden nicht
Und warten angstvoll, du und ich,
Wer wohl zuerst den Zauber bricht.

Wer wohl zuerst einhält im Takt
Und von sich weg die Lichter schiebt,
Und wer zuerst die Frage sagt,
Auf die es keine Antwort gibt.
