Schubert-Liszt – Gretchen am Spinnrade – Buniatishvili, Piano

Gretchen am Spinnrade (Gretchen at the Spinning Wheel), Op. 2, D 118, is a Lied composed by Franz Schubert using the text from Part One, scene 18 of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s Faust.

Gretchen am Spinnrade was originally composed for the soprano voice, but it has also been transposed to accommodate mezzo-sopranos and other voice types.

Schubert completed Gretchen am Spinnrade in October 1814, three months before his eighteenth birthday.
With “Gretchen am Spinnrade” and some 600 other songs for voice and piano, Schubert contributed transformatively to the genre of Lied.
