Ablösung im Sommer

First line:
Kukuk hat sich zu Tode gefallen
composer
No 2 of Book III of Lieder und Gesänge 'aus der Jugendzeit'
author of text
Des Knaben Wunderhorn

 
Ablösung im Sommer is a deft example of the comic, rustic side of the Wunderhorn songs, in which the handover from cuckoo to nightingale is characterized in a shift from naïve slapstick to the sublimely lyrical in the same manner as in the comic singing-competition of Lob des hohen Verstandes in the later collection.

from notes by Roger Vignoles © 2004

Bei Ablösung im Sommer handelt es sich um ein geschicktes Beispiel der komischen, rustikalen Seite der Wunderhorn-Lieder, das den „Machtwechsel“ vom Kuckuck zur Nachtigall in der gleichen Art und Weise wie in der späteren Sammlung den komischen Gesangswettbewerb von Lob des hohen Verstandes mit Hilfe eines Wechsels von naivem Klamauk zu erhabener Lyrik charakterisiert.
