Poetry Into Song: Performance and Analysis of Lieder

Focusing on the music of the great song composers--Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Wolf, and Strauss--this book offers a systematic introduction to the performance and analysis of German Lieder. Directed toward students in both voice and theory, and toward all singers, the authors establish a framework for the analysis of song based on a process of performing, listening, and analyzing, designed to give the reader a new understanding of the reciprocal interaction between performance and analysis.
