Schubert set the poetry of over 115 writers to music. He selected poems from classical Greece, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, from eighteenth-century German authors, early Romantics, Biedermeier poets, and Heine. The Deutsche Schubert-Lied-Edition presents all Schubert’s Lieder, over 700 songs, grouped according to the poets who inspired him. Thanks to the Bärenreiter’s Neue Schubert-Ausgabe (New Schubert Edition), Tübingen, which uses primary sources, the performers have been able to benefit from the most recent research of the editorial team. For the first time, the listener and interested reader can follow Schubert’s textual alterations and can appreciate the importance the written word had for the composer. The project’s



Review By Nicholas Rast,The Daily Telegraph (Australia),March 2002

"SCHUBERT got inspiration for his songs from more than 120 poets. Thematic programmes such as this seventh disc in Naxos's Deutsche-Lied-Edition offer an excellent way to appreciate individual aspects of his diverse output. This attractive concert of Scottish pieces contrasts the settings of Ossian's epic poetry that Schubert made when he was 18 with the Walter Scott songs he wrote while on holiday in Upper Austria 10 years later.

Ulrich Eisenlohr's apt touch at the piano evokes a vividly Caledonian fragrance in Roman Trekel's and Ruth Ziesak's touching account of the tragic love story of Shilrik and Vinvela. A rousing performance of the Lied nach dem Falle Nathos and lyrical rendering of Das Madchen von Inistore complete an absorbing Ossian selection.
