The lieder in this sixth volume were composed during the period between autumn 1814 and spring 1815. With Nachtgesang (D 119) and Trost in Tränen (D120) Schubert turns to the Strophenlied in its stricter sense for the first time. He develops an interest in this form parallel to his first involvement with Goethe.
Schubert, during this period an assistant teacher at his father’s school, orientated himself towards the so-called Berliner Liederschule, particularly the songs of Johann Friedrich Reichardt. By the beginning of the year 1815 he drew his inspiration mainly from the texts of Theodor Körner; however he regularly still produced settings for the poetry of Goethe and Schiller.
