Leise flehen meine Lieder
author of text

The medium of radio inspired the short song Ständchen (1997). During Schubert’s bicentenary year, BBC Radio 3 invited many composers to choose one of his song texts and set it again. Separated from one of Schubert’s greatest-ever melodies, Rellstab’s verse still has a gentle, wistful charm whose muted, nocturnal atmosphere I have attempted to capture.
