Program Notes on An die Laute, Op. 81, No. 2, D 905 by Schubert :

This lovely song An die Laute, Op. 81, No. 2, D 905 was composed in 1827 by Franz Schubert.

It is the second of three songs in Schubert's Drei Lieder, Op. 81, first published in 1827.

The lyrics are by Johann Friedrich Rochlitz (1769-1842).

Rochlitz was a German playwright, musicologist and art and music critic.

Schubert's lied An die laute is a charming and tuneful song in which a suitor serenades his beloved mistress.

He softly plucks his lute from the street up to her window, where a faint light is still gleaming.

The singer is hoping that only his beloved will hear his music, but the neighbors, not the neighbors!

The arpeggiated chords in Schubert's piano accompaniment imitate the soft strumming of a lute.

This song An die Laute was originally composed for high voice in the key of D Major.

This score is a transcription for baritone voice and piano.

It is set in the key of C Major.

It is appropriate for Grade 3 baritone singers.

The vocal range is C3-E4.

An die Laute

Johann Friedrich ROCHLITZ (1769-1842)

Leiser, leiser, kleine Laute,
Flüstre was ich dir vertraute,
Dort zu jenem Fenster hin!
Wie die Wellen sanfter Lüfte,
Mondenglanz und Blumendüfte,
Send es der Gebieterin!

Neidisch sind des Nachbars Söhne,
Und im Fenster jener Schöne
Flimmert noch ein einsam Licht.
Drum noch leiser, kleine Laute;
Dich vernehme die Vertraute,
Nachbarn aber, Nachbarn nicht!
