Book review

An astonishingly prolific composer, Schubert had written more than 600 songs when he died in 1828, aged 31. Most were settings of German poetry, including over 100 by Goethe, but some use Italian words and others are translations into German of English poetry and prose by Walter Scott, Shakespeare and others. The most famous songs have appeared in previously published volumes of texts, but more and more singers are now including the less familiar items in recordings and Lieder recitals. This book provides the texts and Richard Wigmore's prose translations of all the songs, and should be of value to singers with little or no German, and to music-lovers listening to the songs at concerts, on radio and on record.
