James H. Tufts, 1901; second ed. rev. & enlarged (London: Macmillan, 1914). ninety TWO types OF NACHT UND TRÄUME: What Franz Schubert Tells Us a couple of favorite track of Beckett Franz Michael Maier the broadcast model of Franz Schubert’s music Nacht und Träume indicates major advancements over the draft. the cultured ideas that come into sight in a comparability of the 2 models of the track strangely are usually not in any respect surprising to Beckett students. consequently, the hyperlink among Beckett and Schubert will be confirmed on a philological foundation. lately, Beckett’s tv play Nacht und Träume has won significant cognizance. at the one hand, curiosity is because of the iconography found in this tv play, making it an instance of the “Images of Beckett” (Knowlson). Graley Herren has pointed out allusions to the backyard of Gethsemane as depicted in numerous work Beckett favored; Therese Fischer-Seidel has mentioned the theological motif of “manus Dei. ” nonetheless, curiosity in Nacht und Träume stems from the tv medium. during this paintings “the eyes take over,” as Gaby Hartel places it, not just within the experience of recognizable pictorial types to stick with and allusions to iconographic symbols, but in addition within the feel of an openness in the direction of interpretation past particular terminological id. Beckett demonstrates the shut courting of his paintings to romantic notion via either his connection with spiritual motifs and his use of the romantic topoi of “Unsagbarkeit” (transcending human speech) and “Bedeutsamkeit” (meaningfulness). during this textual content, I should still wish to touch upon the query of “Beckett and Romanticism” via contemplating the tune in Nacht und Träume. even though it has usually been saw that the name Nacht und Träume is in reality a citation from a romantic tune, the song itself has no longer stumbled on a lot curiosity. it truly is actual, in fact, that once observing Nacht und Träume, one needs to pressure the ears even to listen to it. The identify Nacht und Träume is either that of a poem by means of Matthäus von Collin (1779-1824) and of a tune via Franz Schubert (1797-1828) who mixed verses of this Franz Michael Maier and of one other poem by means of Collin, Nachtfeyer. 1 The tune doesn't determine within the canon of recognized Schubert songs and is still virtually unknown; Matthäus von Collin’s poems are this present day all yet forgotten. really, the seven bars of melody featured in Beckett’s play are of subtle formal caliber; refined is also the best way Beckett followed the melody in his play, initially hummed in its entirety (bars 21-27 of Schubert’s music) after which that includes its final, artificial half (bars 25-27) repeated with the phrases sung. i've got analyzed those seven bars in other places (Maier 1996); the following I should still wish to supply extra arguments for Beckett’s curiosity in Schubert’s tune. To interpret this tune, i'll utilize a touch on its intrinsic characteristics provided by means of Schubert himself. He had revised this tune sooner than its printing in 1825, and those revisions demonstrate the compositional rules and aesthetic options in the back of it.
