Notes and Editorial Reviews

“A hopeless mishmash ...
... of all sorts of droll, sulky, dirty and worthless street songs, plus a few musty church songs.” There is probably no comparable collection of texts that triggered discussions of an equally controversial nature during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Of all the musical adaptations based on this book of 723 songs, those by Gustav Mahler are probably the most famous, yet Des Knaben Wunderhorn was an inspiration for many other composers, too.

Wolfgang Holzmair is both a brilliant singer and an expert in discovering associations and interrelations. His intense and masterly performance, skillfully accompanied by The?re?se Lindquist, sheds light on the different interpretations by composers from
Read more Mendelssohn to Schumann and Strauss, from Mahler to Zemlinsky and Schoenberg. By putting the musical adaptations inspired by this “worthy folk song book” in context with the relevant composers Holzmair reveals a common thread running through two-hundred years of composition.
