Der müde Wanderer, TrV16

First line:
Schon sank die Sonne nieder
? 1873; WoO13
author of text

No doubt impressed by theatrical scores such as Weber’s Der Freischütz, to which his parents had introduced him at the opera house, Strauss employs piano tremolandi to great effect in Der müde Wanderer, composed in around 1873 to a poem by Hoffmann von Fallersleben. This song also shows the influence of Schumann (in the syncopated left-hand rhythm of the opening) and Schubert (in the delicate, bell-like right-hand figure of the second section).

from notes by Roger Vignoles © 2015

Der müde Wanderer (Hoffmann von Fallersleben), se décèlent les influences de Schumann (dans le rythme syncopé, à la main gauche, de l’ouverture) et de Schubert (dans la subtile figure carillonnante, à la main droite, de la deuxième section).

Der müde Wanderer weist den Einfluss von Schumann (in dem synkopierten Rhythmus der linken Hand zu Beginn) und auch Schubert (in der grazilen, glockenähnlichen Figur der rechten Hand im zweiten Teil) auf.
