Das Liedchen von der Ruhe, Op 52 No 3
Another strophic setting that perfectly conveys the sense of inner calm and peace that the poet imagines finding in the arms of his beloved. In terms of its undemanding and uncomplicated fluency, free of all rhythmic/phrasal angularities, harmonic surprises or self-concious point-making, it makes a refreshing contrast to Beethoven’s many hard-fought musical battles.
