The harmonic shift to D flat major depicts Faust's rebellious response "Ich bin nur durch die
Welt gerrant" (I have raced through the world) to Sorge's question in B flat minor "Hast du die
Sorge nie gekannt?" (Have you never known Care?). The harmonic shifts, arpeggiated sixteenth
notes in the violins and dotted rhythms in Faust's vocal line portray both a dramatic and
emotional shift from Sorge's gloomy joyless predictions to Faust's misplaced display of bravado.
The feelings of anxiousness and worry brought on by Sorge's presence in her mocking
melody (based on the motive in Figure 18) are portrayed musically in the accompanying running
triplet figures in the strings as Faust's defiance reaches its breaking point when he refuses to
acknowledge Sorge's power (see Figure 19).
