Fantasía sobre Der Doppelgänger, by Diego Ramos (1989)

The well-known lied Der Doppëlganger serves as the departure point for Diego Ramos’s Fantasía sobre el Lied “Der Doppëlganger”. Composed in 2007 and revised in 2015, it begins with the same melodic opening as Schubert’s song; a gesture consisting of four mournful notes that reappear throughout the work. At the same time, these four notes harmonically articulate the work by giving rise to an octatonic scale that Ramos uses in a neo-modal context.
