Trost in Tränen
This song is from from the Sechs Gesänge, Op 10, probably written and published between 1808 and 1809 when the frenetically active composer returned to Vienna from St Petersburg to make daily visits to his dying master Haydn. In the naturalness of his musical invention there is neither rigidity, nor any sign of the formulae of the Berlin school; we sense a freedom to use coloratura, melisma and sequences where appropriate (thus an awareness of the possibilities of the Italian style, as we find in Schubert) as well as a touching melodic gift. In short, this is very sophisticated song-composing for its time.
