Forty of Schubert's most popular lieder.
"Schubert's uniqueness lay not only in his raising of the lied from a marginal to a central genre but in his ability to fuse poetry and music in ways that seem not only unique but inevitable. Like those of Wolf, but few others, Schubert's songs can withstand the closest scrutiny because they contain so many layers of meaning and stylistic intersection." Maurice J.E. Brown et al. in Grove Music Online. (Inventory #: 34706)
