Schwanengesang (“Swan Song”) by Schubert with English translation

Published on March 25, 2017

These are the very last songs that Schubert wrote before his death at age of 31. Few other pieces exist that would match the depth of despair, depression and hopelessness in this music. It is futile to describe what’s happening in this music , what is the story… The subtitled lyrics are eloquent enough. If you need the text in languages other than original German and English, here is a link :http://www.recmusic.org/lieder/assemb… I wish I could say “Enjoy” but this is NOT music for enjoyment but rather for catharsis. Good luck on your journey.
