Mozart ‘s few Lieder are representative of eighteenth century song and its tendency toward sentimental melancholy. References to tears, graves and loneliness occur often in the poems, such as An die Hoffnung, K.
Some are satirical, such as Die Verschweigung, K. Its emotional content looks forward to the nineteenth century, as does its winding, through-composed melody, set against constant arpeggiated chords. The song was published in in Vienna; the text is thought to be by Joachim Heinrich Campe.
Abendempfindung has all the markings of eighteenth century sentimental poetry. During an evening, the narrator contemplates the passing of time and life. Soon we must die and our friends’ tears will abebdempfindung on our graves. He then speaks of his own death and asks the listener to shed a tear for him, which will become the most beautiful pearl in his crown.
Through nearly the entirety of Mozart ‘s setting of Abendempfindung one hears an eighth-note arpeggio pattern that halts moozart at pivotal moments. In F major, the song passes through several harmonies, marking particular points in the text. When the narrator notes, “Bald entflieht des Lebens bunte Szene, und der Vorhang rollt herab” Soon the colorful scene of life slips by and the curtain fallsMozart moves to the dominant, momentarily dropping the eighth-note pulse.
The friends’ flowing tears are again in the dominant, but this time it is minor, a mode that continues through the ensuing measures as the narrator asks the listener to weep by his grave. After the harmonic peregrinations of the middle section, the accompaniment of the opening measures returns, but with a new melody that remains in F major.
