Work introduction

Every Austrian knows this folkloric air; Berger returned to it at a time when the Austrian state no longer existed. Thus this choice of theme can be interpreted as a protest against the Nazi regime in Germany, which assimilated Austria in the 1938 Anschluss. The composer presents the folksong and it multitudinous facets using many different tempi, variations and fragments up to the triumphal entry celebrating the song as the composition concludes.
