First edition. Original keys, for medium high voice and piano. Includes 13 previously unpublished lieder, with a foreword in English. Songs represented in this collection are among Korngold's earliest work. The composer of the opera Die tote Stadt and landmark Hollywood film scores, Korngold's style was influenced by Zemlinsky, Mahler, Strauss and Joseph Marx.
“Korngold's harmonic language is grounded in nineteenth century harmony, which he personalized with unusual chords and startling harmonic shifts. A supreme melodist, his vocal lines are beautiful and expressive, often luminous...These posthumous songs, many of which were composed very early in the composer's career, are lovely examples of the early twentieth century romanticism that flourished during the first two decades of the century.”--Journal of Singing
