Schubert. Die Winterreise
  2) Die Wetterfahne

Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 31. Laaber, 2014. Oblong, 4°, 17, 74 pp.

One of Schubert's greatest compositions, based on the poetry of Wilhelm Müller.
Full-color facsimile of the autograph—a treasure of the Pierpont Morgan Library—consisting of a mixture of fair copies and heavily emended first versions. The somber mood of the songs reflects a tragedy in a distant frozen landscape, with frozen tears, numbed feelings, a longing for death, each stage of the loss of love is sounded out by the somnambulistic text of Müller. Introduction in Ger-Eng. Hardbound (text adapted from B. Fassbaender). $195
