August Heinrich von Weyrach (1788-1865), born in Riga and died in Dresden, was a linguist and composer. In 1824 he published, under his own name, a song entitled “Nach Osten,” with German text by Wetzel. In ca. 1840 an anonymous Parisian publisher reprinted it, with Schubert’s name on the title page, as “Adieu,” with French text by Belanger; a piano transcription of it, also crediting the authorship to Schubert, was published by Döhler in Germany in 1843; Schlesinger of Berlin reprinted the song, with a German translation of the French text, as Schubert’s in 1845; since then it has been reprinted many times as Schubert’s by European and American publishers.

Another reference to Weyrauch appears in the works list of Franz Liszt in New Grove Online (an arrangement of the first song, Lebewohl, LW 109, of Schubert's Sechs Melodien, composed by Weyrauch with German text by Wetzel). Item #31193
