Wer sich der Einsamkeit ergibt (Who gives himself to solitude) from Schubert’s Gesänge des Harfners (Songs of the harpist) – cor anglais and guitar


Schubert’s setting of words from Goethe’s “Wilhelm Meister” arranged in the key of E minor
for cor anglais and guitar
In some places the guitar part is simplified in comparison to the original piano part
in order to improve the flowing quality.
A version for cor anglais and piano, also in E minor, is also available
The three individual songs (“Wer sich der Einsamkeit ergibt” [Who gives himself to solitude], “Wer nie sein Brot mit Tränen ass” [Who never ate his bread with tears], “An die Türen” [I will creep up to the doors])
and also all three together (under the title “Gesänge des Harfners (songs of the harpist)” ) are available on this site
