Johannes Brahms found himself “stirred to his depths” by Friedrich Hölderlin’s poem “Hyperion’s Song of Destiny,” which contrasted the blissful existence of the gods with the perils of human suffering. Franz Schubert — an unrivaled master of lieder and chamber music — longed to become a successful composer for the stage. His operas failed to gain favor and his incidental music did not fare much better: the play Rosamunde, Princess of Cypress closed after two performances, but contains some of Schubert’s most remarkable music for the theater.
