MT's List / 八位作曲家們筆下的愛情


It is dreadful when something weighs on your mind, not to have a soul to unburden yourself to. I tell my piano the things I used to tell you. ―Frédéric Chopin.




貝多芬 Ludwig van Beethoven "Unsterbliche Geliebte" (永恆戀人)

Good morning, on July 7

Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, 
now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us -
I can live only wholly with you or not at all - 
Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you 
until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, 
and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits - 
Yes, unhappily it must be so - You will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you. 
No one else can ever possess my heart - never - never - 
Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves. 
And yet my life in V is now a wretched life - 
Your love makes me at once the happiest and the unhappiest of men - 
At my age I need a steady, quiet life - can that be so in our connection? 
My angel, I have just been told that the mailcoach goes every day - 
therefore I must close at once so that you may receive the letter at once - 

Be calm, only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together - Be calm - love me - today - yesterday - what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.

ever thine
ever mine
ever ours



現在我在維也納的生活如此悲戚 — 你的愛曾使我成為世界上最幸福與最痛苦的人。
到了這個年齡,需要的是穩定而平靜的生活 — 我們可以嗎?

靜下心來,只有冷靜的考慮後才能讓了解生活在一起的原因 — 保持冷靜 — 愛我 — 今天 — 昨天— 我是這麼渴望著你 — 你 — 你 — 我的生命 — 我的全部 — 再會。

喔請繼續愛著我 — 永遠不要誤會深愛你的我那最忠貞不變的心。


史特拉文斯基 Igor Stravinsky 

What force is more potent than love?


布拉姆斯 Johannes Brahms

I wish I could write to you as tenderly as I love you and tell you all the good things that I wish you. You are so infinitely dear to me, dearer than I can say.


莫札特 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 

I get all excited like a child when I think about being with you again — If people could see into my heart I should almost feel ashamed. Everything is cold to me — ice-cold. — If you were here with me, maybe I would find the courtesies people are showing me more enjoyable, — but as it is, it’s all so empty — adieu — my dear — I am Forever

your Mozart who loves you

with his entire soul.

我一想到再回到妳身邊就跟孩子一樣興奮 — 如果人們能看穿我的心思我會有些不好意思。一切對我來說都是冷的 — 冰冷的。如果妳陪在我身邊,我會更享受現在。但事實就是這樣,好空虛 — 先這樣吧 我親愛的 — 我永遠都是



克拉拉舒曼 Clara Schumann

I do not want horses or diamonds - I am happy in possessing you.

Ich will nicht Pferde, nicht Diamanten, ich bin ja glücklich in Deinem Besitz

我不要馬匹,不要鑽石 — 被你擁有我已是如此快樂。

拉威爾 Maurice ravel

La seule histoire d'amour que j'ai jamais eue a été avec la musique.

The only love affair I have ever had was with music.


Franz Liszt 李斯特

“Music is the heart of life." She speaks love; "without it, there is no possible good and with it everything is beautiful.”


Rayna Chou
