How is the Erl king by Franz Schubert Romantic?

User Avatar
Romantic music generally refers to a style and time period of music composition that ran from about the early 1800s to around the end of that century. This period followed a "classical period" where classical composers went from a more strict, templated style of composition to a more dynamic, emotional style. While the piece is not "romantic" by our current dictionary definition of love, etc, it is romantic in that is emotional and has a wide dynamic range.

He registered 616 songs with ASCAP. The answer approximately more than 600. Correction: ASCAP did not exist in the early 19th century! But the number is approximately correct.

I would like the words of the song to Schubert's trout quintet I learned it at school and it begins as by a crystal brooklet I wandered on my way?

User Avatar
i can remember only a small sample. i too learnt it at school...28yrs ago As by a crystal brooklet I wandered on my way, among the gentle ripples I spied a trout at play. and here and there he darted , as swift as swift could be, was never a fish so lively and frolicsome as he . As by a crystal brooklet, I wandered on my way Among the gentle ripples I spied a trout at play As here and there he darted As swift as swift could be Was never fish so lively Nor frolicsome as he. Was never fish so lively Nor frolicsome as he. But skillful was the angler With cruel delight He sullied all the crystal water And hid the fish from sight Alas, by that deception The fish, the enticing bait, sought out And I was left lamenting The fate of that poor trout. And I was left lamenting The fate of that poor trout.

What era is schubert's erlking from?

User Avatar
Nineteenth Century. this was considered (Romantic) in its day. times have changed. I will admit some songs dealing with Morbid Love did exist in the late fifties and early sixties- cause was usually an automobile accident ( Tell Laura I Love Her, Last Kiss, etc) some have even argued ( YOure sixteen your beautiful and your mind. What IN the World- Might be about a romance with a missing or Dead Girl. it is a weird song.

How does Schubert's Erlking capture the strangeness and wonder of Goethe's ballad?

User Avatar
I am only vaguely familiar with this morbid song-cycle as it is called and cannot fathom why or wherefore it was even allowed to pass the censor. it has, of course strangeness and wonder (as do the works of Poe) but the whole thing is downbeat and would, needless to say, be consigned to the circular file if considered as a plot device for a television show or comic book. I never could understand the reason why the morbid death of a child theme had any currency-except perhaps in crime fiction based on such senseless crimes as the Ramsay affair and sickening(family-plan) Homicides. Child abuse is bad enough as it is. In both the so-called Sacrifice of Abraham (in the Bible, not Lincoln!) and William Tell-which appears to be a take-off with political overtones rather than religious the child survives. what is the point. one seemingly common thread in some or most of these stories is the kid"s mother is not around! Daddy the destroyer or monster, the Savage side in humankind. Don"t llike it.

What are the English lyrics to Schubert's 'The Trout'?

User Avatar
German lyrics In einem Bächlein helle, Da schoß in froher Eil Die launische Forelle Vorüber wie ein Pfeil. Ich stand an dem Gestade Und sah in süßer Ruh Des muntern Fischleins Bade Im klaren Bächlein zu. Ein Fischer mit der Rute Wohl an dem Ufer stand, Und sah's mit kaltem Blute, Wie sich das Fischlein wand. So lang dem Wasser Helle, So dacht ich, nicht gebricht, So fängt er die Forelle Mit seiner Angel nicht. Doch endlich ward dem Diebe Die Zeit zu lang. Er macht Das Bächlein tückisch trübe, Und eh ich es gedacht, So zuckte seine Rute, Das Fischlein zappelt dran, Und ich mit regem Blute Sah die Betrogene an. Die ihr am goldenen Quelle Der sicheren Jugend weilt, Denkt doch an die Forelle, Seht ihr Gefahr, so eilt! Meist fehlt ihr nur aus Mangel der Klugheit, Mädchen, seht Verführer mit der Angel! Sonst blutet ihr zu spät! English lyrics In a bright little brook there shot in merry haste a capricious trout: past it shot like an arrow. I stood upon the shore and watched in sweet peace the cheery fish's bath in the clear little brook. A fisher with his rod stood at the water-side, and watched with cold blood as the fish swam about. So long as the clearness of the water remained intact, I thought, he would not be able to capture the trout with his fishing rod. But finally the thief grew weary of waiting. He stirred up the brook and made it muddy, and before I realized it, his fishing rod was twitching: the fish was squirming there, and with raging blood I gazed at the betrayed fish. At the golden fountain of youth, you linger so confidently; But think of the trout, and if you see danger, flee! Mostly it is from lack of cleverness that maidens miss the angling seducers. So beware! otherwise you may bleed too late!
