Range An meinem Herzen, an meiner Brust

An meinem Herzen, an meiner Brust, a setting by Adelbert von Chamisso, was composed by Robert Schumann in 1840 (D Major). It is the seventh song of his song cycle, Frauenliebe und -leben.

1840 is also known as Schumann’s year of song, the year where he wrote no less than three major song cycles, Frauenliebe und -leben but also Liederkreis and Dichterliebe.
Frauenliebe und -leben tells the chronological story of a woman’s first love: her marriage, the birth of her first child and, later, the death of her husband. This cycle was probably inspired by the composers’ life itself. At the time, Robert Schumann in love with Clara fails to obtain her father’s acceptance and engages in a legal battle to make this permission unnecessary. In 1840, they finally marry. This song cycle is made of eight songs.

An meinem Herzen is the seventh song of the cycle. After having met her first love (Seit ich ihn gesehen, N.1), praised his qualities with fervor (Er, der Herrlichste von allen, N.2), received his marriage proposal with utter excitement and disbelief (Ich kann’s nicht fassen, nicht glauben, N.3), promised to herself to serve her husband to be with all her soul (Du Ring an meinem Finger, N.4), married him (Helft mir, ihr Schwestern, N.5), become pregnant (Süsser Freund, du blickest, N.6), she is finally mother after the birth of her first child.

She expresses all the delight and joy she is experiencing. Schumann captures this moment at the piano with sweeping fast major arpeggios dancing lovingly. The phrases repeat again and again giving an impression of energy and delight while the acceleration at the middle of the song, seems figure the joy intensifying always more. The vocal line is continuous, only interrupted by fast intakes of breath accentuating the feeling of bliss and excitement
