Der Doppelgänger but not as we know it

As far as you can get from Schubert. Der Doppelgänger Charles Panzéra, 1934 with solemn orchestral accompaniment, in French and in a style that's more Opéra comique than Lieder.  Later,  Gerard Souzay and Dalton Baldwin did a lot of French Schubert but in a different way. This shows that performances can be stretched a long way and still work, though they'll never becomes standard.
