poco piano: schuby

This is a little excerpt from the Wanderer Fantasy by Schubert. The name comes from the second movement of the piece where Schubert uses his own song and creates a variation on it. The whole piece is actually a variation on the that song title “der Wanderer”. In the song, the wanderer is lost in a desolate place, mentally and emotionally.

This little excerpt comes a couple pages before the song quote so I imagine this is a traveling scene. It’s quite serene with some bustling underneath, almost like a smooth carriage ride through the country side with rolling green pastures.
