The Naxos Deutsche Schubert-Lied-Edition: Schubert set the poetry of over 115 writers to music. He selected poems from classical Greece, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, from eighteenthcentury 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 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. This is the first of four discs of Schubert’s settings of the ‘romantic’ poets.

The fact that they were composed over a period of four years and not in the order in which they appear in Schlegel's cycle, suggests that musically Schubert did not see his setting as being strictly linked, though stylistically his treatment of each song was very similar.
