Mendelssohns Wasserfahrt und Der Jäger Abschied, S548
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
There is a vast literature of Romantic music for men’s chorus, nearly all of which remains unperformed nowadays, the fashion having expired long since. Many beautiful pieces by Schubert, Weber, Mendelssohn, Liszt and Richard Strauss, among many others, are only found in libraries under a shroud of dust. Mendelssohn’s set of six choruses which make up his Opus 50 contain music every bit as fine as his Lieder. Liszt makes a single piece out of two of them: Wasserfahrt (published in England as ‘Gondola-Song’) is delicately varied and enhanced with a modulatory coda which leads to the Hunter’s Farewell – Jäger Abschied, a work originally accompanied by brass instruments – which is put through its paces in suitably rousing style.
