Overture from Egmont, Op. 84 (1809–10, arr. for two pianos eight hands by Franz Xaver Chwatal)

To the distant girl
When, in my quiet soul,
I sing soft songs to myself,
How I feel that she is missing -
She, the only one whom I have chosen.
If I could hope that she would sing
What I have so gladly entrusted to her,
Ah! From this breast, this constriction,
Joyous songs would burst forth loudly.
