Rastlose Liebe

First line:
Dem Schnee, dem Regen
composer
author of text

 
Eberwein’s Rastlose Liebe was composed in 1826 (alongside five other Goethe songs including Die Spröde and Erlkönig) and was published in Volume 2 of Täglichsbeck’s Orpheon anthology in the 1850s. The key is E minor with a maggiore section at the end—a passage that is marked poco meno mosso, a tempo change that is uncharacteristic of settings of this poem. However this allows the pianist a little more time to encompass the very tricky triplets that slither their way through the accompaniment. This restless arpeggiated style brings to mind Mendelssohn’s piano-writing, in his chamber music more than in his songs.
