Rastloses Wandern
This song, probably written in the 1830s, is an indication of how much Randhartinger learned from Schubert. It has a broad sweep, an ongoing impulse that has the momentum of a sophisticated sonata movement or chamber music work. The interplay between major and minor keys is entirely Schubertian, and worthy of the highly charged atmosphere of Schubert’s own Schulze settings. The restless pace of a song like An mein Herz, or indeed Über Wildemann itself, is transplanted to another composer’s orbit with the greatest confidence. If Rastloses Wandern is not highly original, it is one of the best Schubert imitations ever penned. In writing this song Randhartinger, who shares the Schubertian Zeitgeist, proves his closeness to the composer far more convincingly than by invented anecdotes.
