Joseph Freiherr von Eichendorff, one of the greatest Romantic poets beside Johann Wolfgang Goethe and Friedrich Schiller, was connected with Silesia…

“No one can conjure up a grander romantic landscape in their poetry, nobody sings so longingly about loneliness, about forests and wooded meadows, about old castles bathed in the moonlight. No one writes so beautifully about the rustling threes, sleepy springs, or the sound of the postilion’s horn.” (Prof. M. Szyrocki)

Joseph Freiherr von Eichendorff, one of the greatest Romantic poets beside Johann Wolfgang Goethe and Friedrich Schiller, was connected with Silesia: he was born and raised here (in Łubowice near Racibórz). He was educated in Wrocław, among others, his grave is located in Nysa to this day. He also drew his inspiration from here, in writing the poems that most frequently described his childhood home: Silesia. His work has inspired many Romantic composers: among those who wrote music to his poems were Robert Schumann, Hugo Wolf, Johannes Brahms, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy and Max Reger. In addition to numerous solo songs, over a dozen choral pieces were composed – we would like to present them to you at the Cantores Minores Wratislavienses concert.
