Schubert: the lyricism of lieder

Arturo Reverter critic indicates that: “The lyricism of Schubert's lyricism of lieder, whose deep and troubling backdrop as nothing less than the romantic idea of ​​death, intuits that, is eying, finally it becomes real, singular alone or in connection with the surrounding nature, after each instrumental effect, melodic or harmonic; after those subtle thematic chains, apparently improvised expressive or below tremolos, abundant chromaticism, the dissonances or the apoyaturas. Through the lyrical effusion things are transfigured into that romantic who eventually ascribed and where nothing will universe and what was. Winterreise (Winter trip) is, indeed, a real inner journey, a basic idea, as we said, Schubert's music. Rarely it has been painted in such a precise, justness and loneliness dramatics, desolation and despair; It not often has penetrated so deeply into the intimate drama of a human being and has delved into the antechamber of death itself and in these songs, real journey to nowhere. Two fundamental and recurring themes dominate the musician Müller's poems: again the idea of ​​travel, change of position in space, Shuttle, and loneliness”.
