Description

Composed by a young Berg, while studying with Schoenberg, these Seven Early Songs would be revisited and reworked ten years later, and then again ten years after that. Perhaps influenced by Mahler, Berg created orchestral settings of these songs, in addition to the voice and piano versions.
