Ludwig Van Beethoven: Goethe Songs

Books | High Voice, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Henle Verlag
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
"Faust", "Wilhelm Meister", "Egmont", even "Erlkönig" - again and again Beethoven chose texts by Goethe for his song compositions. Now, for the first time, all of Beethoven’s songs with texts by the great Weimar writer are available in one volume. Alongside the famous setting of "Wonne der Wehmut" and Mephisto’s satiric Flea Song op. 75 no. 3, there are also others to be discovered, such as four different versions of Mignon’s Song "Nur wer die Sehnsucht kennt". The musical text in the Beethoven Complete Edition forms the basis for this volume. In addition the Flea Song has been revised following the autograph that recently reappeared.
