Meine Heimat

First line:
Bei dir ist meine Heimat
author of text

Johann Sobeck (1831-1914), born in Karlsbad, Bohemia, was a clarinettist, trained at Prague Conservatory, who enjoyed a career of fifty years from 1851 as principal clarinet for the Court Orchestra at Hanover. He composed much for his own instrument in a variety of forms—sonatas, concertos, wind quintets, opera fantasias and songs. The writing for the wind instrument in Meine Heimat is assured, idiomatic and effectively married to voice and text.
