Graf Eberstein, Op 9 Book VI No 5
Graf Eberstein (1826) is an Uhland ballad that draws on the historical feud between the Saxon Emperor Otto I (936–973) and the counts of Eberstein. Loewe sets the tale, with its faintly risqué payoff, as a whirling Ländler that evokes Haydn’s Seasons or Mahler’s more innocent Wunderhorn songs.
