It is not hard to understand the popularity of the Brahms works, rich in sentiment and romantic nostalgia, but the two composers were aiming at completely different things. We should be grateful for such accomplished diversity in the Lied. Schubert had chosen to set the poems strophically, and Brahms who knew his Schubert very well offered a deliberately different durchkomponiert solution.

Brahms's An die Nachtigall is meditative and lyrical, Schubert's much more urgent, on the wing and a-flutter; as if it is a matter of life and death that the nightingale's painfully evocative song should be silenced.

The song is marked 'Restless, plaintive. Growing in tempo until the end of each verse'. Neither fish nor fowl, the wide-ranging vocal line is an outburst of melody with the peremptory flexibility of recitative. The accompaniment is no less inventive. In the first half of each verse, the harmonies seem arbitrary and thus appropriately distracted: the strummed arpeggios, not to mention the extraordinary piano mini-cadenza at the end of each verse, give an improvised, quasi-Hungarian feel to the music.

One is irresistibly reminded of the mad Lisztian outbursts, in the key of F sharp minor this song's original tonality , in the slow movement of the A major Piano Sonata, D Of course it could also be that in this warbling rush of notes Schubert is attempting to depict, in a manner pre-dating Messaien, the actual song of the nightingale as he heard it.

Do not pour out so loudly the sonorous strains of passionate love-songs from the blossom-covered boughs of the apple tree, O nightingale! The singing from your sweet throat awakens love in me; for already your melting sighs pierce the depths of my soul. Track-specific metadata. Click track numbers above to select.
