A solitary exile’s yearning for ‘der Heimat Frieden’—the peace of my native land—is the theme of Das Heimweh, derived from verses by the Dresden poet and journalist Theodor Hell, nom de plume of Karl Gottfried Winkler. Like so much that Schubert wrote in 1816, this little-known song, in strophic form (i.e. with the same music for each verse), combines a chaste, Classical grace with a Romantic sensibility, its mood of unassuaged longing set by the chromatically oblique piano introduction.

from notes by Richard Wigmore © 2014

Die Sehnsucht eines einsamen Vertriebenen nach „der Heimat Frieden“ ist das Thema von Das Heimweh, das zu den Versen des Dresdener Dichters und Journalisten Karl Gottlieb Theodor Winkler, alias Theodor Hell, entstand. Wie so viele Werke, die Schubert im Jahre 1816 komponierte, steht auch dieses kaum bekannte Lied in Strophenform und es wird eine schlichte klassische Anmut mit romantischer Empfindsamkeit verbunden; die Stimmung ist eine der ungestillten Sehnsucht, die durch die chromatisch-verdeckte Klaviereinleitung erzeugt wird.
