Verlorne Müh

First line:
Büble, wir wollen ausse gehe
composer
1 February 1892; subsequently published as No 2 of Des Knaben Wunderhorn (also called Humoresken)
author of text
Des Knaben Wunderhorn

 
Verlorne Müh is a unequal contest. Here the music is outright caricature, the girl’s wheedling Ländler-rhythms and lachrymose grace notes becoming ever more extreme, and the boy’s brushoff increasingly peremptory. But remove just a little of the acid, and the song could have come straight from the pen of Johann Strauss.

Verlorne Müh ist ein weniger ausgeglichener Wetteifer. Hier ist die Musik eine ausgesprochene Karikatur: die einschmeichelnden Ländlerrhythmen und rührseligen Vorschläge des Mädchens werden zusehends extremer, die Abweisungen des Jungen immer herrischer. Etwas weniger ätzend, und das Lied könnte aus der Feder von Johann Strauss stammen.
