Published by Yale University Press, Franz Schubert: The Complete Songs is a 3-volume, 3, page set, and is finally available, after many delays/5(22).

Franz Schubert’s song cycles Schone Mullerin and Winterreise are cornerstones of the genre. But as Richard Kramer argues in this book, Schubert envisioned many other songs as components of cyclical arrangements that were never published as such.

And so is Hermann Prey’s rendition of all three of Franz Schubert’s song cycles: Die schöne Müllerin (), Winterreise (), and Schwanengesang (). These are considered the best Liederzyklus (song cycles) ever written. And this is the best version I’ve ever seen. The cycles were released individually in the mid-eighties on.

  The triptych of Schubert song cycles with the great English tenor Mark Padmore was always going to be one of the main attractions of this year’s White Light Paul Lewis as Author: Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim.   A year before his death at 31 Franz Schubert published 'Winterreise' or 'winter's journey', a series of 24 poems set to music exploring unrequited love. Schubert described them as 'truly terrible'.
