Schumann - Dichterliebe, Op. 48 (Poet's Love) for Medium Voice
Books - Vocal - Repertoire
The ups and downs of disappointed love: who could fail to sympathize with the feelings that Schumann immortalized in his song cycle Dichterliebe after Heine? The pieces range from hopeful anticipation, to solitary grief and bitter sarcasm. Schumann knew what he was writing about: the cycle originated in the year of his marriage to Clara Wieck, an event that took place only after years of struggle. The tried-and-tested Henle Urtext edition by the Schumann specialist Kazuko Ozawa is now also available for singers with medium voice: in close collaboration with the experienced pianist and renowned Lied accompanist Gerold Huber, we have adapted the whole cycle, including the four songs of the appendix, for medium and low voices.
