Range Allerseelen

Allerseelen , a setting by Hermann von Gilm , was composed by Richard Georg Strauss in 1885 (Db Major) and published in 1887. This lied is the last one of his song cycle, Acht Lieder aus Letzte Blätter.

Richard Strauss composed his 8 Gedichte aus “Letzte Blätter” as he turned 16. If those songs were not his first try at German Lieder, they were, however, the first songs Strauss assigned an opus number to and felt confident enough to have published. If perhaps, Strauss’ many Lieder did not often receive the praise they deserves, three songs in this cycle stand out as his most well-known compositions, Zueignung, Allerseelen and Die Nacht.

Allerseelen is the last song of the song cycle and one of the most famous ones. It was so appreciated at the time that, Max Reger, transcribed it into a version for solo piano, and Robert Heger into a version for voice and orchestra. Strauss originally intended it to be sung by a tenor but his wife, Pauline, a soprano, sang it many times.
They are many different interpretations of this poem, a supernatural encounter between the singer and his dead lover or a singer trying to revive an old love affair?

This lied is a beautiful example of Strauss’ romantic lyricism. The syllabical vocal line, built around frequently repeated notes, underlines the nostalgic simplicity of the text while the piano accompaniment and its arpeggiated cords, suggests the yearning for springtime where lovers unite in bliss.
