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 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 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. Naxos’s acclaimed series of Schubert’s Lieder continues with a selection of songs including the famous Die (The Trout), Am Tage Aller Seelen (On All Souls’ Day) and others with texts by poets associated with the Sturm und Drang (Storm and Stress) literary movement.



Review By Uncle Dave Lewis ,,April 2010

…the singing—by soprano Caroline Melzer and bass Konstantin Wolff…is consistently good, and one can listen again and again without growing tired of Schubert: Sturm und Drang Poets or feeling that its resources are exhausted after a listen or two…Naxos has done well in transmitting his capabilities in this respect.

Review By David Denton, Naxos,March 2009

In their Deutsche Schubert-Lied Edition Naxos has grouped their discs under the heading of the poets who supplied texts, and now offer ‘Strum und Drang Poets’. What a curious mishmash of languages, though the real problem is that the texts may belong to the era of Storm and Stress poets, but Schubert’s music did not always reflect the mood of the words. And how does the pretty Hochzeit-Lied (Wedding Song)—particularly when heard in Caroline Melzer’s comely performance—come to be included? Still there are here many songs that you will rarely have chance to hear from the poets Johann Georg Jacobi and Christian Friedrich Daniel Schubart, the latter poet being responsible for the famous Die Forelle (The Trout),
