Winter Journey (D911)


Courage

Let the blizzard do its worst
I will stride before it
Let my heart with sorrow burst
I will just ignore it
I will sing and stop my ears
Should my heart start pining
Drowning all my useless tears
What’s the point in whining ?
Keep on singing – come what may
Triumph or disaster
There’s no God on earth today
Man alone is master
Keep on singing come what may
Triumph or disaster
There’s no God on earth today
Man alone is master

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.
