Franz Schubert arr. Mertz: Ständchen (Serenade) - for Guitar

There are a few different works called Ständchen or Serenade. This one is no.4 from a collection of songs D.957 published shortly after the death of their composer Franz Schubert and called Schwanengesang (or Swan Song) by the publisher. The song is a popular one and many arrangements have been made for various instruments and combinations of instruments. The particular arrangement here is for Guitar and was written by the Austro-Hungarian composer/guitarist Johann Kaspar Mertz. In the arrangement the guitar plays both the accompaniment and melody, which later on becomes two melody lines with one imitating or echoing the other.
