Franz Lachner worked as Court Kapellmeister in Munich for many years, but before this, he lived in Vienna from 1823 to 1832; he was friends there with Franz Schubert, whose "Der Hirt auf dem Felsen" can probably be seen as a model for the two works presented here. Lachner wrote "Frauenliebe und -leben" on a text by Adalbert von Chamisso during his Viennese period. The "Lyrisches Intermezzo" after Heinrich Heine, the second song in this volume, is, in contrast, transmitted in a copy datable to circa 1840, which would thus make it ascribable to the Munich creative period.
