Schubert, Die Schone Mullerin (Cambridge Music Handbooks)

Schubert, Die Schone Mullerin (Cambridge Music Handbooks) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a guide to both the music and the poetry of Schubert's much-loved song cycle, set to poems by the Prussian poet Wilhelm MÜller. Composed in 1823, this work is one of the greatest masterpieces of the song repertoire. The genesis of both the poetry and the music, composed soon after Schubert discovered that he had contracted syphilis, is discussed in the first two chapters. A chapter on the poetry considers MÜller's uneasy relationship to the tenets of Romanticism; the influence of Goethe, folk poems, and medieval poetry on Die schöne MÜllerin; and a reading of each of the poems, which are reproduced in German and in English translation. The final chapter provides commentary on each of the twenty songs in the cycle.

Synopsis:

This guide to Schubert's much-loved song cycle explores both the music and the poetry from a variety of perspectives. It includes biography and cultural history, literary interpretation, source studies, and musical analysis.

The genesis of Wilhelm Muller's poems, which began as a literary salon game in 1816, and the music, composed soon after Schubert discovered that he had contracted syphilis, is discussed in the first two chapters, which also include little-known information about the poet, the premiere of the cycle, and Eduard Hanslick's critiques later in the nineteenth century. The chapters on the poetry discuss Muller's uneasy relationship with the tenets of Romanticism; the influence of Goethe, folk poems, and medieval poetry on Die schone Mullerin; and provide a reading of each of the poems, which are reproduced in German and English translation. The last and lengthiest chapter consists of brief analytical commentaries on each of the twenty songs in Schubert's masterpiece.
