Schubert's Winterreise: A Winter Journey in Poetry, Image, & Song

Cover
Univ of Wisconsin Press, 2003 - 233 Seiten

Winterreise is perhaps the greatest song cycle ever written. Franz Schubert set to music the evocative poetry of his contemporary, German lyricist Wilhelm M ller. It is a heart-rending portrayal of a winter journey full of misery and woe.
This striking and unique multimedia volume brings together the achievements of Schubert and M ller with new interpretations by present-day musicians, scholars, and a photographer. The volume includes:
o the complete German text of Wilhelm M ller’s twenty-four poems
o a new English translation of the poems by Louise McClelland Urban
o a foreword by Pulitzer Prize–winning American composer John Harbison
o an introductory essay by renowned Schubert scholar Susan Youens
o ninety-two stunning black and white photographs of a winter’s journey by Katrin Talbot
o a compact-disc recording of the Winterreise song cycle performed by baritone Paul Rowe and pianist Martha Fischer.
