BEETHOVEN An die ferne Geliebte, Op.98
SCHUBERT Schwanengesang, D.957
Beethoven’s ‘An die ferne Geliebte’, composed in 1816, was the frst true song cycle, and a piece that fascinated the romantic generation of composers that came after him. Schubert’s posthumously published ‘Schwanengesang’ contains the seeds of two distinct cycles – one setting the poetry of Heine, the other using texts by ludwig Rellstab.
