Few if any composers equaled Schumann in the breadth of his literary taste. His reading encompassed the major figures of European literature in German translation, as Die Weinende, a setting of Byron inhis Jugendlieder collection, amply illustrates. The three sets of Lieder und Gesänge in this volume are among his most expressive, the earliest dating from his magical 'year of song' of 1840. They take as their subject matter a panoply of romantic concerns: love of nature, the changing of the seasons, parting from one's beloved, the allure of mermaids, as well as more cheerful strophic songs. This is the final volume in this acclaimed series.
