Range Die Forelle

Die Forelle , a setting by Christian Friedrich Schubart, was composed by Franz Schubert in 1817 and published in 1820.

He chose to set a poem of Christian Friedrich Schubart, written during the poet’s ten years of imprisonment (between 1777 and 1787). The text, divided in four stanzas describes the beauty of a trout swimming and how its life is stopped, as a predator catches it. In the fourth stanza, the trout’s tragic life is compared to the life of young girls, preventing them against the false pretenses of young men. Schubert purposefully avoided to set this final verse. Consequently, the moral ending of the text is left more open to imagination and interpretation than in the original poem.

Die Forelle is built around a varied strophic structure. The piano accompaniment, figures the agility of a trout in the transparent fast flow of water. The melody at the vocal line is straightforward and candid. As the trout is caught, the harmonies switch to minor and the flow at the piano is broken up by dramatic rests.
