»Truly, a divine spark dwells in Schubert!«
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827)
»Anyone who loves music can never be quite unhappy.«

Franz Schubert (1797–1828)
»I am composing like a god, as if it simply had to be done as it has been done.«
Franz Schubert
»What I produce is due to my understanding of music and to my sorrows; that which sorrow alone has produced seems to give least pleasure to the world.«
Franz Schubert

Franz Schubert

In a certain sense orchestrated Lieder by Franz Schubert (1797–1828) could be considered as a preliminary stage to the genre of orchestral song as we know it from the German-speaking area especially by composers such as Franz Liszt, Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss, Hugo Wolf, Arnold Schönberg, Alban Berg, Anton Webern, and Alexander Zemlinsky. Distinguished composers such as Hector Berlioz, Franz Liszt, Johannes Brahms and later Richard Strauss, Anton Webern, Arnold Schönberg, Max Reger, Benjamin Britten, but also eminent conductors such as Felix Mottl, Felix Weingartner and Hermann Scherchen have arranged Schubert Lieder with orchestra introducing them to a larger public in the orchestra concert. For all this, Schubert’s Romanze from the Singspiel Rosamunde may have served as a source of inspiration.

Critical Acclaim (Schubert/Spindler: An Silvia)
»Baritone Matthias Goerne joined the SCO for a selection of Schubert Lieder, orchestrated by a variety of composers: Brahms, Webern, Reger and Matthias Spindler, described in Conrad Wilson’s scholarly programme note as a “busy modern arranger”. One could hear instantly in Spindler’s orchestration of “An Sylvia”, D.891, that busyness refers to professional success as opposed to a fondness for cramming a work with notes. On the contrary, this elegantly scored arrangement is perhaps something we might have expected from a one-time recording coordinator for Deutsche Grammophon. To my surprise, the orchestrations I enjoyed least were Brahms’, which, while often beautiful, were sufficiently heavy on occasion to present any vocalist and conductor combo with issues of balance.«
