Trinklied (1815) D267

Trinklied

Auf! Jeder sei nun froh und sorgenfrei!
Ist noch Jemand, der mit Gram
Schwer im Herzen zu uns kam:
Auf! auf! er sei nun froh und sorgenfrei!

Drinking song

Come! Let every man be glad and carefree!
And if there’s anyone who came to us
With grief weighing on his heart,
come, let him now be glad and carefree!
Translations by Richard Wigmore first published by Gollancz and reprinted in the Hyperion Schubert Song Edition

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.
