    The Czech composer Zdenek Fibich (1850–1900) had a keen interest in classical German literature. It therefore comes as no surprise that he had already set songs to texts by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe while still a student at the Leipzig Conservatory.

    Between 1865 and 1871 he composed 16 songs on texts by this famous German author for voice and piano. Ten of them have survived: the song "An den Mond", dating from 1869, and nine further songs from Goethe's novel "Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre" were composed immediately after Fibich's return to Prague in 1871.
