This treasury contains a rich selection of melodies from the heyday of the romantic songs known as Lieder. Their settings range from simple to ornate, and their levels from intermediate to advanced. All are appropriate for high voice; some can be performed by high baritones or mezzo-sopranos.
All of these songs reflect Richard Strauss's lifelong preoccupation with melodic yet conversational and recitative style. Reproduced from authoritative editions, they feature new literal translations that will assist singers with their understanding, preparation, and interpretation. This edition includes an informative Introduction by editor, professor, and performer Roelof Oostwoud.
