Instrumental music can communicate pure emotion without using words. Audience was increasingly made up of middle class. Composers grouped songs into collections with unifying characteristics, such as texts by a single poet or focus on common theme. All songs are to be performed in order as movements of a multi-movement vocal work. Combine narrative emphasis with expressivity of lyric poem. Song cycle provides balance between small and large forms, lyric and narrative content, unity and variety. Piano was capable of producing full, firm tone at any dynamic level. Reinforcing melody by simulating orchestral technique of doubling. Schubertiads are lieder first performed in home concerts. Some are declamatory, intense, and dramatic, strong sense of harmonic colour. Complex modulations are embodied in long passages in which tonality is kept in suspense and underlined dramatic qualities of song text. Alternating between major and minor forms of triad. Modulations move from tonic toward flat keys, and median/ submediant.
