Presentation

Im Rhein, im heiligen Strome, a setting by Henrich Heine , was composed by Robert Schumann in 1840. It is the sixth lied of his song cycle, Dichterliebe.

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. It is also known to be the year where he was finally able to marry Clara, the love of his life, after an endless legal battle to overcome the opposition of her father to their marriage.

He chose to set 16 poems by Heinrich Heine, a poet Clara and Robert had both briefly met. They were all selected from Heine’s Lyrisches Intermezzo book. Schumann wrote this song cycle while still apart from Clara, her father doing everything in his power to separate them. The song cycle dedicated to Clara, expresses the joy for lovers of being together but also the pain of separation and grief.

Im Rhein, im heiligen Strome is the sixth song of Dichterliebe. It follows, the tender melancholic Im wunderschönen Monat Mai, N.1, where the poet expresses his yearning for his beloved and Aus meinem Tränen spriessen, N.2, where he dreams of reciprocated love. Die Rose, die Lilie, die Taube, die Sonne, N. 3, is an exalted declaration of love while Wenn ich in deine Augen seh’, N. 4 expresses serene joy. In the lied that precedes our song, ich will meine Seele tauschen, N. 5, he remembers the wonders of one of her kisses.

Schumann sets Im Rhein, im heiligen Strome in a particularly tormented tonality, E minor. The right hand at the piano slides down perpetually while the rhythms of a funeral march repeat over and over. The vocal line is Durchkomponierte, nevertheless 4 different stanzas structure the piece. In the third stanza as one speaks of the loved one, Schumann uses diminished cords while piano takes over the melody. This is certainly no coincidence and deception is yet to come.
