The development of the piano, together with changes in culture and society, led to the transformation of song into a major musical genre. This study of the great lieder of 19th-century composers Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms, and Hugo Wolf also includes lesser-known composers, such as Louis Spohr and Robert Franz, plus significant contributions from Luise Reichardt, Fanny Mendelssohn, and Clara Schumann, among others.
