Aufenthalt (D. 957) (Arr: J K Mertz) by Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

Franz Schubert
Although he died at an early age, Schubert was tremendously prolific. He wrote some 600 Lieder, nine symphonies (including the famous “Unfinished Symphony”), liturgical music, operas, some incidental music, and a large body of chamber and solo piano music. Appreciation of his music during his lifetime was limited, but interest in Schubert’s work increased dramatically in the decades following his death at the age of 31

Romantic. D957 Schwanengesang. 136 Bars. 2/4 Time Signature. 6 pages. key of E m. Arranged by Johann Kaspar Mertz.

Aufenthalt (Resting Place) derives from a Rellstab poem and is found in Schwanengesang. It is a bitter and resigned song about rejected love – “Surging river, roaring forest, immovable rock, my resting place.”
