Conradin Kreutzers Wanderlieder and Fruhlingslieder
A Facsimile Edition with new translations
Luise Eitel Peake
The romantic song cycles of Swabian composer Conradin Kreutzer and poet Ludwig Uhland have most often been compared to those of Franz Schubert and Wilhelm MпїЅller. Each of the four sets is an artwork in which the lyrics melodies and accompaniments are inseparable. Because tempo dynamics phrasings and embellishments are very carefully indicated in Kreutzer’s score and because the translations in this facsimile edition are meant to be sung this publication not only discloses the beauty of Uhland’s poetry but also provides a most useful performing edition of these worthy songs.
