Use Wolf (soprano)
Martin Isepp (piano)
In 1840, the year of his marriage to Clara Wieck , Schumann produced some of his best songs. These included the cycles, Liederkreis, Frauenliebe und Leben, and Dichterliebe. There are in fact two sets entitled Liederkreis (which simply means ' song-cycle '): the first is settings of nine poems by Heine; the second, to be performed tonight, is made up of settings of twelve poems by Eichendorff.
