Die schöne Müllerin, D795
Leopold Godowsky inlays Schubert’s innocence with ivory and gold, with a darkening and enriching chromaticism that has enraged artists (notably Sir Clifford Curzon) of a more puritan taste. Here, it must be admitted, Schubert takes second place, and whether you consider such hyphenation elevated or debased, richly perfumed or defiled, it is hard to resist such a lavish and bejewelled tribute.
