Tune of the Day: Wasserflut

from Franz Schubert's “Winterreise”, arranged for flute and piano

Franz Schubert composed his song cycle Winterreise (“Winter Journey”) for tenor voice and piano in 1827, a setting of 24 poems by German poet Wilhelm Müller.

The sixth song in the cycle is “Wasserflut”, usually translated as “Flood”.

Many a tear from my eyes
Has fallen into the snow;
Its cold flakes suck in
Thirstily my burning grief.

When the grass is about to sprout,
A mild wind blows,
And the ice breaks up into pieces,
And the soft snow melts away.

Thanks to Thibaut for suggesting this piece!
