Pfitzner chose Karl Förster’s translation of a sonnet by Francesco Petrarca as the text of the third lied of Opus 24. The Italian Renaissance poet and humanist Petrarca (1304-1374) was greatly admired and influenced poetry across Europe. Some of his sonnets or their translations were set to music by Schubert, Liszt, and Schönberg among others.
