I. Art Songs by Franz SchubertHeidenröslein (The Wild Rose).Question 1. Goethe and Schubert purposefully adopt a simple, folk-like syle for the lyrics and music to tell the story of a boy plucking a wild rose. What might be the meaning of the song, on a deeper level?Question 2.Each singer will bring his or her own interpretation to written music in the song. How does Elly Ameling make the last refrain of the song different fromt the previous two, and why do you think she does so?
Erlkönig (The Erlking)Question #3 The story of “Erlking” involves four characters: the storyteller, the father, the son, and the Erlking.

Consider pitch ranges, dynamics, and contrasts between major and minor.Question #4. How does Schubert use a subsiding of tempo, silence, and the piano to emphasize the devastating last line of the story?
