The Naxos Deutsche Schubert-Lied-Edition presents all of Schubert’s Lieder, over 700 songs, grouped according to the poets who inspired him.

Themes include grief, death and ressurrection as well as love, friendship and humour. Together with the classical poetry of Goethe and Schiller, the ‘poets of sensibility’ played the most important part above all in Schubert’s early years as a composer.

This is the second of two discs devoted to the settings of Matthias Claudius, Friedrich Leopold Stolberg and Ludwig Holty. What links them is that they wrote poems in a popular folk-style known as the German Empfindsamkeit or Poetry of Sensibility. Their subjects include grief, death, resurrection as well as love, friendship and humour and together
