Presentation

Auf dem Wasser zu singen , a setting by Friedrich Leopold zu Stolberg-Stolberg, was composed by Franz Schubert in 1823 (D.774, Op.72).

1823, the year where Schubert composed auf dem Wasser zu singen, appears to be, posteriorly, a lime stone in the composer’s life. Aged 26, after many rapid evolutions, his musical style seems to reach maturity: in 1823, he composes the remarkable song cycle, die Schöne Müllerin, but also the Wanderer Fantasie for piano. More tragically, it also appears to be the year where he contracted syphilis and from then on, his health will decline rapidly.
Auf dem Wasser zu singen sets to music a poem by Friedrich Leopold zu Stolberg-Stolberg, a renowned German poet, who had died four years earlier. The text reaches the quintessence of romanticism, the soul of the poet mirroring the beautiful landscape where the sunset caresses endless waves. The piano accompaniment is famous for recreating the movement of glistening waves. The 6/8 bar signature is typical of a barcarole.
