Schubertís Auf dem Strom, D943, was written in 1828 Ė based upon a
text by Ludwig Rellstab. It was a work composed for a concert of his own
music on March 26, 1828 Ė the first anniversary of Ludwig von
Beethovenís death. Amazingly, this was the first public concert to
feature solely the music of Schubert, and sadly, this was to be the year
of Schubertís own death. The landmark concert proved to be both a
musical and financial success.
of Schubertís fame rests upon his treatment of the German lied, bringing
it to the status of an Ďartí song and thereby making the art song one
of the primary vehicles of the German Romantic composer. Schubertís
poignant textures and his synthesis of text and music set the stage for
European song composers for the rest of the 19th century. Auf dem Strom
was originally written for tenor voice, horn and piano. Schubertís use
of the French horn as an obbligato part in Auf dem Strom is unique among
his songs; in this transcription, the trombone plays the voice part while
the horn and piano parts remain true to the original.
