An Aria A Day #43

‘Du bist die Ruh’
by Franz Schubert
Piano Narelle French

20th June, 2020

Surrounded by birdsong, Emma Pearson performs this peaceful and tranquil song from her home in Wellington.

‘Du bist die Ruh’ (‘You are rest and peace’) by Franz Schubert is the third in a set of four songs set to poems by Friedrich Rückert. Taking its title from the first line of the poem, the simple melody in no way suggests how challenging Schubert’s composition is to sing, made to look effortless here by Emma.
