Sample text

Little Ursel was always too small to participate in these exercises; but even with four singers one was already superfluous, so to speak, for the kind of vocal music to which barnyard Hanne was able to elevate our lusty voices raised in song. She taught us to sing rounds, you see-the ones children always sing, of course: "Row, row, row your boat," " Are you sleeping," and the one about the cuckoo and the jackass; and those twi­ light hours we enjoyed together have remained a fixed, important memory-or rather, the memory of them later took on enhanced meaning because they were, in terms of any evidence I can provide, what first brought my friend into contact with " music" that flowed with somewhat more artistic organization than is found in mere uni­ son singing of songs.

The knoll was called Mount Zion (a quite inappropriate, but surely age-old designa­ tion) and was good for sledding in winter, though the season seldom found me there. In summer the "peak," with its wreath of shady maples and a bench purchased by the village, offered a breezy spot with a fine view, which I would often enjoy with the Leverkiihn fam­ ily on Sunday afternoons before supper. And here I feel constrained to mention the following: The frame­ work of landscape and house where Adrian later established his life as a mature man-that is, when he settled for good with the Schweigestills in Pfeiffering near Waldshut in Upper Bavaria-very strangely resembled, even replicated, the framework of his childhood; or put another way, the setting of his later years curiously imitated that of his youth.

I'll D O C T O R F A U S T U S JI not speak of her here, but of her prototype, with whom little Adrian was on friendly terms because she loved to sing and used to arrange lit­ tle singing lessons for us children. And strangely enough, whereas Els­ beth Leverkiihn, with her lovely voice, abstained from singing out of some kind of chaste modesty, this creature still smelling of her animals would go at it with abandon. Her voice was raucous but her ear was good, and of an evening on the bench beneath the linden tree she would sing for us all sorts of folk songs, army tunes, and street ballads, most of them either maudlin or gruesome, whose words and melodies we quickly made our own.
