▯ 8/31/2016  German Romanticism – an insatiable quest to go beyond what is known. The embrace of the contradictory; the mingling of the incompatible.  Classicism wanted to create boundaries and limit ideas and scope. Romanticism destroyed that idea.  The idea of the “wanderer” – someone by themselves, left to their own devices for self introspection and to also commune with nature.  Nature represents purity, to revive, to recharge the soul. Looking for answers.  Night time – mystery, super natural, darkness, seduction(?), death  Longing for death  Schubert evolved from the dramaticism of “erlkonig” and “Gretchen…” into complete artistry and quest for beauty as he grew as a composer. ▯ *1840 Schumann- an outpouring of lieder from this one year.  art is the expression of the deepest reality  art at it’s base is a longing for union with an ultimate reality.  The artist is the spokesperson for God and how you communicate with God.  “Music has the ability to express emotions audibly. It is the spiritual language of emotion which is hid more secretly than the soul. My songs are intended as an actual reproduction of my inner self.” – Schumann  Music wins out over poetry for Schumann  Believed in an aristocracy of talent. He thought there was a difference between someone who worked hard and genius.  Genius makes his own rules. Talent has a language of it’s own.  Clara Wieck’s father said Schumann was just a piano player, he wouldn’t amount to anything else. Op. 24 (leiderkreiss) and Op. 25 happened when Schumann thought he was trying to write more than piano music. Filled them with all of his anxiety and stress about trying to marry Clara.  Eichendorff– nature poet; loss of childhood paradise; deeply connected with folksong; images in the poetry mean much more than you would think. Lots of mythology. Sunrise = good luck; Noon = something not good; Night = mystery; Star = hope, something good, God;
