Abstract

Franz Schubert (1797-1828), an Austrian composer, produced over 600 pieces of music within his lifetime with a very specific sound. While he used many poets as inspiration, two that stand out are Friederich Rückert and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. With the intent of improving music performance and pedagogy, the purpose of this research was to compare the music and poetry of two Schubert songs. The particular problems of the study were to: 1) outline the biography of Franz Schubert; 2) explore the compositional technique Franz Schubert used in his art songs; 3) investigate the poets, Friederich Rückert and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe; and 4) to analyze the compositional technique of Lachen und Weinen and Der Erlkönig.
