Sergei Rachmaninov (1873 - 1943)
The Dream Op.8 No.5
Text by Aleksey Pleshcheyev (1825-1893) after Heinrich Heine (1797-1856)
Song text translation:
And I saw my home land: how beautiful it is!
There the pine waved over me.
But it was a dream!
A family of friends was alive. From all sides
Sounded words of love to me. But it was a dream!
