With "Gretchen am Spinnrade" and some other songs for voice and piano, Schubert was a significant contributor to the genre of the Lied. Schubert composed "Gretchen am Spinnrade" on 19 Octoberthree months before his eighteenth birthday Bodley; Cooper The song is in three sections, exactly reflecting the form of Goethe's poem Bodley Hans Deinzer - Schubertiade 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 wheelthinking 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 majorA minorE minorF majorand then returns back to D minor.
This, plus the crescendo, builds tension which releases only to be brought back to Hans Deinzer - Schubertiade beginning, much like the ever-circling spinning wheel. Additionally, the absence of the rhythmic, consistent treadle allows Gretchen to lose her sense of stability and reality as she swoons Jörg Demus 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.
