Schubert's setting of words from Goethe's "Wilhelm Meister" (with my singing translation in English) transposed to the key of E minorfor low voice and piano.A version for voice and guitar, also in E minor, is also availableThe sound sample is an electronic preview.The three individual songs ("Wer sich der Einsamkeit ergibt", "Wer nie sein Brot ass", "An die Türen") and also all three together (under the title "Gesänge des Harfners (songs of the harpist)" ) are available on this siteWer sich der Einsamkeit ergibt,Ach! der ist bald allein;Ein jeder lebt, ein jeder liebtUnd läßt ihn seiner Pein.Ja! Laßt mich meiner Qual!Und kann ich nur einmalRecht einsam sein,Dann bin ich nicht allein.Es schleicht ein Liebender lauschend sacht,Ob seine Freundin allein?So überschleicht bei Tag und NachtMich Einsamen die Pein,Mich Einsamen die Qual.Ach, werd ich erst einmalEinsam in Grabe sein,Da läßt sie mich allein!Who gives himself to solitudeWill soon find he's aloneeach of us liveseach of us lovesand leaves him to his pain.Yes leave this anguished souland if I can just oncefind solitudeThen I am not alone.A lover comes and listens softto see if she is aloneand so it is by day and nightthat pain creeps up on methat anguish comes to meOh only in the grave will I find solitudeThen she will leave me be(English translation (c) 2015 David Warin Solomons).
