The German Lied did not actually establish itself until 1814, when Schubert set Goethe's Gretchen at the Spinning Wheel to music. During the 19th century, Germany will passionately practice this form of expression, the most natural in art. With his customary verve, André Tubeuf explains its history and unveils its most precious treasures. According to him, the Lied is an approach: Schubert. An origin: silence. And a material: water.
