An die Nachtigall, a setting by Matthias Claudius , was composed by Franz Schubert in 18. It is the first lied of his collection of songs, Drei Lieder, op. 98.

In 1817 year where An die Nachtigall was composed, Schubert is barely 20 years’ old. After leaving his village and his father, he meets Johann Michael Vogl, a famous baritone of the time that will be key in introducing him to many rich families.

An die Nachtigall sets a beautiful short poem (six verses only) by Matthias Claudius. Despite the brevity of the lied, it is considered to be one of Schubert’s most beautiful early songs. Schubert builds the lied in a durchkomponiert musical structure. The melody at the vocal line is filled with quiet tenderness, supported by a supple, melodic piano accompaniment. The climax of the song on the penultimate verse, with a modulation from G Major to G minor adds something of magical and charming to all those gentle harmonies.
