It is difficult to put my enthusiasm for these translations into adequate words. This is exactly what students desperately need, an accurate word for word detail, without which a Lied cannot be coloured vocally. This project is urgently needed; it is a wonderful idea. (Dame Janet Baker)From the Back Cover:
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 such perennial masterpieces as Schubert's song cycles Die Schone Mullerin and Winterreise, Schumann's Dichterliebe, and Mahler's Kindertotenlieder. This book provides the German texts of the most frequently studied and performed songs, and gives literal, word-for-word translations under each line, plus clear English prose versions of each poem. The composers represented are Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Wagner, Brahms, Wolf, Mahler, and Richard Strauss. This new edition includes numerous corrections and improvements to the translations.
