Lieder Line by Line: And Word for Word

by ,

German song in the nineteenth century offers some of the greatest pleasures available to the singer, pianist, and listener. The great German poets--Goethe, Schiller, Ruckert, Eichendorff, Heine, Morike, Hesse, and many lesser figures--inspired masterpieces by Schubert, Schumann, Beethoven, Wagner, Brahms, Wolf, Mahler, and Richard Strauss. This textbook for students and performers provides the German texts of the most frequently studied and performed songs by the above group, and gives literal, word-for-word translations under each line, plus clear English prose versions of each poem. Neither is a singing version, but each contributes to the understanding and appreciation of the song. This new edition includes numerous corrections and improvements to the translations."
