Heimathlied

First line:
Treues, stilles Friedensthal

Johann Baptist Wenzel Kalliwoda [Jan Křtitel Václav Kalivoda] (1801-66) studied violin and composition at the Conservatory of his native Prague. He spent most of his career conducting Prince von Fürstenberg’s orchestra at Donaueschingen, married the opera singer Teresa Brunetti (1803-92), and their son Wilhelm served as Kapellmeister at Karlsruhe. Kalliwoda’s output was large (Der Sennin Heimweh of 1862 is his opus 236), including 2 operas, orchestral, chamber and piano works; his songs were widely admired. Heimathlied (Song of Home) is characteristically tender reflection on the theme of ‘no place like home’. Whenever the music strays into the minor mode, that mood is soon dispelled with a return to the major and affirmation of where the heart truly lies, comfortingly consoled by the clarinet’s gentle yodelling.
