Schubert's Erlkönig: Music, Visual Storytelling, and Subtitles


Anonymous said...

When I teach the Romantic movement, I often use this as a musical introduction, telling the students that there are three characters, then playing it, then asking them what they think the story is. No subtitles, because I like the Fischer Diskau recording. They get the sense of menace and trouble.

Interesting. I'll have to listen with my eyes closed sometime.
