Combining the previously distinct genres of the traditional Tied and dramatic ballad is arguably Schubert's greatest contribution to song. Whilst the former is typically strophic the latter relies heavily on through-composition; combining the two allowed him to compose far more sophisticated song-forms in the service of musico-poetic expression. My thesis examines Schubert's songs from this perspective, and a central concern is the important role that recomposition of reprised material plays in his tertiary-form settings.
