Presentation

Auf einer Burg, a setting by Joseph Freiherr von Eichendorf , was composed by Robert Schumann in 1840. It is the seventh lied of his song cycle, Liederkreis.

1840 is also known as Schumann’s year of song, the year where he wrote no less than three major song cycles, Frauenliebe und Leben but also Liederkreis and Dichterliebe. It is also known to be the year where he was finally able to marry Clara, the love of his life, after an endless legal battle to overcome the opposition of her father to their marriage.
Liederkreis, Op. 39, also called Eichendorff Liederkreis is to be distinguished of Liederkreis, Op.24, another song cycle composed the same year by Schumann on Heine’s poetry. In Liederkreis, Op. 39, Schumann choses to set 12 poems by Joseph Freiherr von Eichendorff, all selected from the poet’s book ‘Intermezzo’. Schumann describes his song cycle in a letter to Clara as “my most romantic music ever, with much of you in it, dearest Clara’. And indeed, solitude, nocturnal mystery, longed-for memories and painful emotions closely intertwine to create an intensely romantic scenery.
Auf einer Burg is the seventh lied of Liederkreis. A few words about the songs that precede it: In, In der Fremde (N.1), the narrator is filled with solitude and loneliness while in Intermezzo (N.2), he passionately declares his love. In Waldesgespräch (N.3), he meets die Lorelei and gets trapped forever in the woods. Die Stille (N.4) is a delicate love confession followed by a magical nocturne, Mondnacht (N.5) and Schöne Fremde (N.6), a song full of joy in the mist of the night.
With auf einer Burg, the song cycle shifts to something more gloomy and mysterious. The vocal line is somehow incantatory. The modal colors intermingled with canonic imitations from time to time, relate harmonically to medieval times. Schumann sets the vocal line mostly in the lower register, intensifying the impression of solemnity and gravity.
