Liederkreis - Warte, warte wilder Schiffmann
Liederkreis - Anfangs wollt ich fast verzagen
Berg' und Burgen schaun herunter
in den spiegelhellen Rhein,
und mein Schiffchen segelt munter,
rings umglänzt von Sonnenschein.

Ruhig seh' ich zu dem Spiele
goldner Wellen, kraus bewegt;
still erwachen die Gefühle,
die ich tief im Busen hegt'.

Freundlich grüssend und verheißend
lockt hinab des Stromes Pracht;
doch ich kenn' ihn, oben gleißend,
birgt sein Innres Tod und Nacht.

Oben Lust, im Busen Tücken,
Strom, du bist der Liebsten Bild!
Die kann auch so freundlich nicken,
lächelt auch so fromm und mild.

======

Mountains and castles gaze down
into the mirror-bright Rhine,
and my little boat sails merrilly,
the sunshine glistening around it.
 
Calmly I watch the play
of golden, ruffled waves surging;
silently feelings awaken in me
that I have kept deep in my heart.
 
With friendly greetings and promises,
the river's splendor beckons;
but I know it - gleaming above
it conceals within itself Death and Night.
 
Above, pleasure; at heart, malice;
O river, you are the very image of my beloved!
She can nod with just as much friendliness,
also smiling so devotedly and gently.

It's pretty, I'll give you that, but it doesn't feature the kind of technical challenge I most appreciate out of classical music.

I ove the piano imagery in this song, You can just hear the shimmering in the water. Schumann, gotta love his piano accompaniments soooo much.

Pianists always write the best accompaniments. Mainly because they know the limitations of the instrument. They don't always write reasonable voice lines, though (I'M LOOKING AT YOU BRAHMS)
