Schubert. Complete Songs - The Final Year Der Doppelgänger

Genre: classical

A deceptively simple piece, the vocal part gives a powerful portrayal of menace and foreboding over an elegantly poised and measured piano accompaniment. Some systems fail to get any real feeling of dread across; there is no sense of purpose, a lack of tension between the parts. Loud sections are loud for no obvious reason becoming shouty and histrionic and the ending is just a wrap-up of the piece dissipating any sense of mystery or intrigue.
