SCHUBERT - MISCELLANEOUS SONGS
Sung by GEORGE PARKER (Baritone)
Der Wanderer ('The Wanderer')
Lied des gefangenen Jagers (Song of the Captive Huntsman)
Gesange des Harfners II ('Harpor's Song')
Der Musensohn (The Muse's Son)
The most heedless listener must now begin to realize something of the extent of the rich heritage in which he has a share in Schubert's songs. They have been sung as Foundations of Music 'during several weeks of this centenary year, but there are so many that even were nothing else done, they could of themselves provide material for the series for about half a year, and even then there would be some over, from the operas, plays, and sacred works. And their variety is almost as amazing as their number.
'The Wanderer' is a song of exile in which the singer asks of the unfriendly world about him where happiness may be found. At the end he hears a spirit voice answer his question, telling him that where he himself is not, there may happiness be found. Listeners will remember that Schubert himself made a pianoforte fantasy of this song and that Liszt elaborated it in a version with orchestral accompaniment.
Harper's Song' is the second of three songs of Goethe's, taken from the tale of Wilhelm Meister. There is a sad little prelude, softly played, and then the Harper sings very simply, 'Who ne'er his bread with tears did eat ... he knows you not, you powers of heaven.' The accompaniment, no less simple, suggests the thrumming of the harp-strings.
