Range Sonntags am Rhein

Sonntags am Rhein, a setting by Robert Reinich, was composed by Robert Schumann in 1840. It is the first song of his song cycle, Sechs Gedichte aus dem Liederbuch eines Malers.

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. Schumann decided to set the words of a minor poet of his time, Robert Reinick, around July 1840, as his marriage with Clara was almost settled. Although this song cycle, Sechs Gedichte aus dem Liederbuch eines Malers (op.36) was never considered to be one of his major works, it is, nonetheless, a lovely enjoyable musical moment.

Sonntags am Rhein is the first song of the song cycle. It seems to be, in many ways, in the style of a Volkslied, a popular German Folk tune. The relentless identical Gs at the piano’s right hand (bar 1,2,3) resemble the sound of a horn, instrument symbolizing hunting and grand landscapes. The tonality changes remain rare, unlike in other lieder by Schumann, highlighting evermore the resemblance of this song to a popular Volkslied. The vocal line sounds lyrical and luminous as the singer describes the majestic scenery in front of him.
