Des Knaben Wunderhorn and the Ruckert Lieder for Voice and Piano
By (author) Gustav Mahler
Gustav Mahler by Gustav Mahler
Book Description"Des Knaben Wunderhorn" (The Youth's Miraculous Horn) was an assemblage of folksongs and folksong-style poems collected and adapted in 1805 and 1808 by poets Achim von Arnim and Clemens Brentano to reflect their concept of German folk poetry. In 1887, Gustav Mahler discovered the musical potential of this collection; and over the next 14 years, it provided him with most of his song texts.By applying his personal experiences to reinterpret literary thought something he was to do all his life in almost every composition he penned he was able to create musical settings that elevated poetry beyond the realm of fairy tales and neo-medievalism. Included among these celebrated lieder are: Zu Strassburg auf der Schanz; Ablosung im Sommer; Nicht Wiedershene!; Wo die schonen Trompeten blasen; Trist im Ungluck; and Rheinlegendschen.In addition to Mahler's 23 songs on Wunderhorn texts and the full text of the 24th song, Das himmlische Leben this important new compilation contains his settings of five poems by Friedrich Ruckert a marvelous representation of the composer's most intimate and significant work. Both sets of songs have been reprinted from authoritative sources for this handsome, inexpensive edition."

Author Biography - Gustav Mahler
Austrian composer and conductor Gustav Mahler (1860 1911) wrote chiefly symphonies and "Lieder. "Late Romantic in style, his tempestuous works reflect the anxious mood of Europe at the turn of the 20th century. Because of his Jewish roots, the composer'smusic was suppressed by the Nazis but has enjoyed a steady revival over the past five decades."
