Song Lit – Week 1 Tragedy – It doesn’t end well. Opera plot. ▯ Genre – essay, poem, song, art ▯ German Lieder – Began around 1785 and “period” ends around 1920. ▯ French melodie – Began around 1830 and “period” goes to around 1955. ▯ Some composers took horrible poems, but elevated them so much with their music that they became beautiful. ▯ Sing art song to develop your imagination and your personhood, to sing and deliver greatest poetry of the age. ▯ ▯ La Cloche Felee  Lyric poem – compressed expression of an idea.  Difference between prose and poetry – prose is like walking from one side of a room to another, poetry is like doing pirouettes across the room.  Comparison between the cracked bell and the soul.  A healthy bell and a cracked one. A healthy soul and a damaged one. (soul – innermost being)  Also comparison between good soldier and dying soldier. 3 things that can be healthy and 3 things that can be unhealthy. ▯ ▯ German Lieder  Folk song came before lieder which was strophic and easy to sing in your homes. Snobbery came later with art song.  The changing role of the piano had a big influence on lieder.  There were great bursts of poetry that were being published and was celebrated by lieder.  Goethe was a big poet that inspired lieder.  Later 1700’s when it first began we had Mozart and Haydn who helped begin this movement. ▯ Schubert (1797 – 1828)  He died really young.  Composed symphonies, operas, chamber music, and 600+ lieder.  1814*** - “Gretchen am spinnrade” was written and in 1815*** Schubert composed “erlkonig” among a 250 really vitally important lieder.  Schubert was Austrian.  Goethe (1749-1832) – wrote poetry, prose, plays, and was very famous during his life time.  Literary movement – “sturm und drang” – storm and stress – the extremes of emotions, volatile. The emphasis from before was on perfection/form/enlightenment, but sturm und drang was the opposite and was very trendy and in “vogue” for the people. o People committed suicide as a copy cat because of a famous Goethe book. o Goethe wrote “Faust” – guy sells soul to devil and it ends badly.
