Goethe and Schubert: The Unseen Bond


Franz Schubert set 80 of Goethe's poems to music; the resulting lieder are masterpieces of the song literature. Whitton discusses the cultural background of the era, describing Goethe's interest in music and musicians, and Schubert's surprisingly wide knowledge of contemporary literature. Each of the songs is treated, with translation and discussion of the background of both text and music. HARDCOVER.
