Bernhard Ambros Ehrlich

Poet

Bernhard Ambros Ehrlich

1765 - 1827

Bernhard Ambros Ehrlich was an imperial royal gubernial councillor (a government official) and official auditor of accounts—and hence probably also a censor—in Prague; no more is known about him. Schubert set his poem Als ich sie erröten sah (When I saw her blush), D. 153 [1] in ecstatically lyrical tone with melodic phrases of great expressivity that constantly mount in enthusiasm accompanied by a constant flow of semiquavers. It is almost more akin to an aria than to the more declamatory Lied.
