With "Gretchen am Spinnrade" and some other songs for voice and piano, Schubert contributed transformatively to the genre of Lied. Schubert composed "Gretchen am Spinnrade" on 19 October , three months before his eighteenth birthday Bodley , ; Cooper , The song is in three sections, exactly reflecting the form of Goethe's poem Bodley , On the other hand, Schubert contradicts Gretchen's return to composure in the last three stanzas by obsessively repeating her words to create a second climax on the highest note of the song Cooper , — The song opens with Gretchen at her spinning wheel , thinking of Faust and all that he had promised.

The accompaniment in the right hand mimics the perpetual movement of the spinning-wheel and the left hand imitates the foot treadle. The first section progresses from D minor to C major , A minor , E minor , F major , and then returns back to D minor. This, plus the crescendo, builds tension which releases only to be brought back to the beginning, much like the ever-circling spinning wheel.

The left-hand imitation of the treadle disappears and is replaced with block chords, giving this section a more free feeling. Additionally, the absence of the rhythmic, consistent treadle allows Gretchen to lose her sense of stability and reality as she swoons over Faust.

Similar to the previous section, the music returns to the home key of D minor as Gretchen resumes reality and begins her spinning once more.

However, the treadle-like left hand is present, keeping her rooted in reality. Gretchen comes down from this fantasy quicker than before, as she realizes she and Faust will never be together. With a heavy heart, Gretchen comes to terms with this hard truth. The song ends as it began: in D minor, alluding to the monotony of the spinning wheel, and how reality is always present.

Gretchen am Spinnrade Text and Translation

In this great 18th century play, Mephistopheles has made a bet with God, that he can corrupt the righteous mortal Faust. Faust is lured into a pact with the devil, in which the poor scholar Faust gets whatever he wants on earth, with a promise to serve Mephistopheles in Hell. One of the things that Faust wants is Gretchen, but the romance ends in murder and infanticide. In Scene 18 of the first part of Goethe's two-part drama, Gretchen narrates the story of her tragic relationship with the scholar and Doctor Faust.
