Im Rhein, im heiligen Strome - Schumann: Dichterliebe

this piece is really cool because of the contrast in vocal and piano part. The voice in the beginning is very strict and sustained with quarters, half, and whole notes...
the piano has a very jerky feeling because of the eighth, quarter, eighth thing going on..very cool contrast between the two...
The piano line is kind of trying to get the voice line to come and join it and in the second section the voice does start to free up and addes in the alternating quarter, eighth rhythm..this section the piano actually plays right along with the voice..
by the third section the roles have completely changed..the piano is sustaing whole notes for up to three measures and the voice it jerky..then the piano plays the closing which is a recap of the very first A without the vocal line...
i hope this still counts because i accidentally feel asleep on my desk at 4 in the morning working on my music history paper......
