Franz Schubert, Winterreise (Winter Journey), 1827

The songs in Winterreise are united thematically as a sequence of reflections by the singer on a lonely walk during a winter's night. To express the feelings of a love lost, Schubert uses lonely themes of cold, darkness, and the barren winter landscape.

1. Gute Nacht (Good Night)
2. Die Wetterfahne (The Weather-vane)
3. Gefrorne Tränen (Frozen Tears)
4. Erstarrung (Numbness)
5. Der Lindenbaum (The Linden Tree)
6. Wasserflut (Torrent)
7. Auf dem Flusse (On the Stream)
8. Rückblick (Backward Glance)
9. Irrlicht (Will o' the Wisp)
10. Rast (Rest)
11. Frühlingstraum (A Dream of Springtime)
12. Einsamkeit (Lonliness)
