An die musik
An die Musik, a piece by Franz Schubert, text by Franz Schober, arrangement by Pierre Calmelet for mixed four-voice choir SATB and piano. Composed in March 1817 on a poem by his friend Franz Schober (1796-1882), An die Musik is one of Franz Schubert's most famous Lieder. The poet thanks the music that has always supported him in difficult times, opening the doors to a better world. These words of hope inspired Schubert, then 20 years old, with a luminous music that some critics would even describe as "miraculous".
