text/plain (30 lines)

Both roles? There are four. The Narrator, the Son, the Father, and the Erlkonig. For me, the 3 
treble roles aren't really differentiated enough, but then again I wouldn't want him to go 
overboard into caricature either (he almost does in terms of the rather "Wicked Witch" edge 
on the Erlkonig part).

I think what he tries to do is interesting, and though it's a bit of a "parlor stunt" perhaps, it's 
fun, and hell, why shouldn't it be? 

As much as I love this song, as a pianist my wrist always hurts a bit in sympathy whenever I 
hear it, lol. I'm a little jealous of the pianists who can relax their wrists enough to really do all 
those repeated octaves cleanly. That ain't easy. ;-)

acts out the text.
