Tune of the Day: Im wunderschönen Monat Mai

by Schumann, transcribed for flute and piano

This Lied is taken from Dichterliebe (“A Poet's Love”), the best-known song cycle by Robert Schumann. Composed in 1840, it sets to music 16 short poems by the famous German poet Heinrich Heine.

In beautiful May, when the buds sprang,
love sprang up in my heart.
In beautiful May, when the birds all sang,
I told you my desire and longing.

Parts of the piece have recently been featured in the K-pop song “Summer Rain” by GFriend, which was released in 2017.

Thanks to Olivia for suggesting this piece!
