Lilla an die Morgenröte (1815) D273

Lilla an die Morgenröte

Wie schön bist du, du güldne Morgenröte,
Wie feierlich bist du!
Dir jauchzt im festlichen Gesang der Flöte
Der Schäfer dankbar zu.
Dich grüsst des Waldes Chor, melodisch singet
Die Lerch’ und Nachtigall,
Und rings umher von Berg und Tal erklinget
Der Freude Widerhall.

Lilla to the Dawn

How beautiful you are, golden dawn,
how majestic!
With his flute’s festive song
the shepherd offers you joyful thanks.
The chorus of the woods greets you,
lark and nightingale sing sweetly,
and round about joy’s echo
resounds.

Composer

Franz Peter Schubert was an late Classical and early Romantic composer. He produced a vast oeuvre during his short life, composing more the 600 vocal works (largely Lieder), and well as several symphonies, operas, and a large body of piano music. He was uncommonly gifted from a young age, but appreciation of his music was limited during his lifetime. His work became more popular in the decades after his death, and was praised by 19th century composers, including Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms, and Liszt.
