Zu Strassburg auf der Schanz
EnglishDeutsch
In Zu Strassburg auf der Schanz a young soldier finds himself on the way to the scaffold or the firing-squad for an unidentified crime. Here his crime is desertion, or at least going absent without leave, and the muffled drums and tight military rhythms that represent his captivity are in eloquent contrast to the freedom inherent in the alphorn, whose nostalgic call had caused him to desert his post in the first place. (Mahler directs the introduction to be played Wie eine Schalmei – ‘like a shawm’.)
