Songs My Mother Taught Me for Euphonium and Piano

Dvorak, Antonin



Originally written in 1880 for voice and piano, "Songs My Mother Taught Me" is the 4th song from a cycle of seven, titled "Gypsy Melodies" (op. 55, no. 4). The text of the song, originally written in German and Czech by Adolf Heyduk, is as follows:

     Songs my mother taught me, in the days long vanished;

     Seldom from her eyelids were the teardrops banished.

     Now I teach my children each melodious measure.

     Oft the tears are flowing, oft they flow from my memory's treasure.

Solo Parts Included: Euphonium BC or TC
