Here are some notes on it, by Jens Bang-Rasmussen.
Ständchen (Schubert), arranged by Degen for violoncello and guitar
A popular piece for guitar and violoncello. Degen transcribes music very freely, as did most of the romantic composers. He transcribes the original music into a style of his own. As in all Degen’s transcriptions, the guitar part is for the seven-string guitar.
