"Gute Nacht" (D. 911 Op. 89 No. 1) for Viola & Piano. (Mike Magatagan)

I listened to this strictly out of curiosity... sharing this play-along video sheet music because I was really taken by it's beauty! 

 

"Gute Nacht" (Good Night) recants that by moonlight, in winter, the poet leaves the house as he came to it, a stranger. The daughter has allowed their love to grow, and the mother has encouraged the pair to think of marriage: but the daughter's love has wandered to some new sweetheart. So he quietly and secretly steals away while they are sleeping, writing 'Good night' on her door, and leaving the path of his footsteps in the snow.

 

Am I the only one who hasn't heard this piece by the Romantic, Franz Peter Schubert

I've heard it, but not played on a string instrument. It's originally for tenor voice.

I messed around with it at some point, and a few other Schubert songs from the Winterreise. Some are beautiful (I like Der lindenbaum a lot too, or Frühlingstraum, …) --> all of them here

And here's the music for the entire song cycle.

https://imslp.org/wiki/Winterr.....rt,_Franz)

Note that the voice part is written in treble clef an octave above the note that's actually sung; that's the convention for tenor parts. Most of the songs are within the viola range when transposed down an octave (to the notes that are sung), and all of them are comfortably in either violin or viola range in the written pitch (which would be an octave above the sung pitch).
