New practical edition of “Sechs Lieder” op. 19 by Richard Strauss from “Lotosblätter” by German poet Adolf Friedrich von Schack (1815-1894).
Strauss composed these songs in 1888. He often accompanied his wife, the soprano Pauline Strauss-de Ahna, on the piano and worked with her on interpretations of his piano songs. The resulting entries of the composer (e.g. performance markings) are reproduced in this edition.
The songs here are set in their original keys.
Based on the text of “Richard Strauss Works” – Critical Edition (RSW), with English translations by John Bernhoff.
