Continuing the new Urtext edition of Schubert’s lieder, editor Walther Dürr now presents volume 6, for high, medium and low voice. While volumes 1 to 4 of this series contain mostly lieder that Schubert had published during his lifetime, volume 5ff. contain the remaining songs which are presented basically chronologically in the order of their Deutsch catalogue number.

The lieder in this sixth volume were composed during the period between autumn 1814 and spring 1815. With “Nachtgesang” (D 119) and “Trost in Tränen” (D120) Schubert turns to the “Strophenlied” in its stricter sense for the first time. He develops an interest in this form parallel to his first involvement with Goethe. Schubert, during this period an assistant teacher at his father’s school, orientated himself towards the so-called “Berliner Liederschule”, particularly the songs of Johann Friedrich Reichardt. By the beginning of the year 1815 he drew his inspiration mainly from the texts of Theodor Körner; however he regularly still produced settings for the poetry of Goethe and Schiller.
