Frauenliebe und -leben
- Apple Music
‘The value of Schumann’s songs lies chiefly in their spiritual depth, and in this respect they belong with the greatest and most magnificent inexistence; indeed on can say, with regard to the finest of them, that there are few creative works that can be placed quite beside them.’ (Franz Brendel, 1860). Alongside Frauenliebe und –leben, Schumann’s most famous cycle, here is his opus 90 to poems by Nikolaus Lenau, less well known today but quite as celebrated in its time.
