6 Polyphonic Studies: No.6 Concert Variations on 'The Last Rose of Summer' in G major (1864) Heinrich Wilhelm Ernst (1812-1865) Clara-Jumi Kang (violin) 2012 Heinrich Wilhelm Ernst was the most celebrated violinist of his time. Having modelled his playing on that of Paganini, he came to be viewed as a rival of the older master, although he was admired by contemporaries such as Schumann and Berlioz not only for his virtuosity but also for his musicianship. The list of his compositions is crowned by the set of Six Polyphonic Études for unaccompanied violin that he published towards the end of his life. The last of these is based on ‘The Last Rose of Summer’, a traditional Irish tune which Thomas Moore fitted with words in his Irish Melodies in 1813, creating a song which became widely known through its use in Flotow’s 1847 opera Martha. is dedicated to Antonio Bazzini. This etude is the most complex of the set and includes an introduction, theme, four variations, and a finale. The variations feature double-stopped sixteenth notes (quavers) (first variation); melody accompanied by fast arpeggios (second variation); double-stopped counterpoint, including simultaneous octaves and tenths (third variation); and melody played pizzicato or in harmonics accompanied by fast arpeggios. Rowe wrote that the finale is a summing-up of violin technique: "scales on one string, double harmonics, rapid artificial harmonics, and pizzicato chords."

Ernst wrote his 'Carnival of Venice' variations in 1837, shortly after a meeting with Paganini. Due to plagurism issues Ernst was forced to publish the variations in 1843.

Julian Sitkovetsky (1925-1958), the great Russian violinist. Heinrich Wilhelm Ernst (1812- 1865), Moravian-Jewish violinist and composer. Polyphonic Etude No.6, in G major Variations on "the Last Rose of Summer" Recorded in 1956 "The Last Rose of Summer" is a poem by Irish poet Thomas Moore, Sir John Stevenson set the poem to widely known Irish melody. "The last rose of summer" - by Thomas Moore 'Tis the last rose of summer, Left blooming alone; All her lovely companions Are faded and gone; No flower of her kindred, No rosebud is nigh, To reflect back her blushes, Or give sigh for sigh. I'll not leave thee, thou lone one! To pine on the stem; Since the lovely are sleeping, Go, sleep thou with them. Thus kindly I scatter, Thy leaves o'er the bed, Where thy mates of the garden Lie scentless and dead. So soon may I follow, When friendships decay, And from Love's shining circle The gems drop away. When true hearts lie withered, And fond ones are flown, Oh! who would inhabit This bleak world alone? 夏日最後的玫瑰 -- 夏日最後的玫瑰，入秋猶自紅， 所有可愛的伴侶，無復舊時容， 殘花片片悲凋謝，新花望裡空， 欲把嬌顏留住，長嘆誰與共。 何須留汝在枝頭，遺汝獨消瘦， 既然好友盡長眠，去去相與守， 我將掃棄成香塚，為汝殷勤覆， 從此芳菲難再復，惆悵使人愁！ 面對隨花傷往事，往事成空虛， 半生珍惜良友情，消失已無餘， 更有那人間歡愛，飛去如飄絮， 似這般悽涼的世界，索居向誰語！ (以上中文翻譯出處不明, 借用的)

Traditional / Folk, c1836-1858 Became popular during the U.S. Civil War, especially among cavalrymen. "There's a yellow rose in Texas, I'm going there to see, No other Feller knows her, Nobody known to me. She cried so when I left her, It's like to broke my heart, And if we ever meet again, We'd never walk apart. |:She's the sweetest little rosebud, That Texas ever knew, Her eyes are bright as diamonds, They sparkle like the dew; You may talk about your Clementine, And sing of Rosalee, But the Yellow Rose of Texas, Is the only gal for me.:| When the Rio Grande is flowing, The stars are shining bright, She walked along the river, On a quiet summer night: She said if you'll remember, We parted long ago, I promised to come back again, And not to leave her so. |:She's the sweetest little rosebud... :| Now I'm going back to find her, My heart is full of woe, We'll sing the songs together, We sang so long ago I'll play my bango gaily, And sing the songs of yore, the Yellow Rose of Texas, will be mine forevermore. |:She's the sweetest little rosebud... :|"
