Weyrauch, A. H. (falsely attrib. Schubert) arr. Tarrega - Adieu - Video

Post by Stephen Kenyon » Thu Oct 27, 2016 9:37 pm

My uncle was a terrific fan of Schubert and I played this at his funeral, supposing at the time that Tarrega had arranged one of the Viennese master's songs. In fact while the song is widely credited to Schubert, and this arrangement is commonly published under that name, it is pretty plain that its not by him at all (see below for further info or the info box in the YT video itself.) At the time of editing and uploading this I don't think I'd quite established the full story.

Further data on the origin of the song;
This song is spurious - it is not actually by Schubert. It is listed in the Deutsch thematic catalog (1950 edition) under "Spurious and Doubtful works". According to Deutsch:
"The song was, in fact, composed by August Heinrich von Weyrauch, with words by Karl Friederich Gottlob Wetzel, and was published by the composer in 1824, under the title 'Nach Osten!' ('Nach Osten geht, nach Osten die Erde Flug'), together with other of his songs. It was re-published, this time separately, in 1846 by C.A. Challier & Co., Berlin."

Whatever the origin of the song, it is quite beautiful, and quite beautifully played and recorded, Stephen. Many thanks for posting it.

Indeed, very nice. I need to wander out of the early music section more often.
