Schubert, Franz (1797-1828)

Vienna, Dreimäderlhaus. - The small building with a gabled façade on the Mölker Bastei is typical of Schubert's time. The composer is said to have had love affairs with the three daughters of the master glazier Tschöll, who lived here; however, this is merely a tale. The musical quotation refers to this legend and brings the first bars of the song "Ständchen" ("Serenade") from Schubert's last, posthumously published cycle "Schwanengesang" ("Swan song", D 957): "Leise flehen meine Lieder durch die Nacht zu Dir" ("Softly my songs plead through the night to you", after a poem by Ludwig Rellstab).
