Am Maienfeste 'Der Jäger an die Müllerin'
Berger’s songs are mostly simple and are clearly meant for amateur performance. Nevertheless, they have a terse kind of effectiveness and greater sophistication than a preliminary reading first reveals. There are two songs here where the Schubert enthusiast will not be familiar with the texts—Am Maienfeste which gives words to a character, the hunter, who stays ominously silent in Schubert’s cycle, and Rose, die Müllerin for the Maid of the Mill who only speaks in reported speech in the Müller version.
