Franz Schubert's songs are treasured by singers and audiences alike for their rapt lyricism and dramatic intensity. Yet what has received little attention is his practice of setting the same poem more than once - particularly those of Goethe. This perceptive study offers detailed musical analysis of his different versions of texts such as An Den Mond and Nur wer die Sehnsucht kennt (which he set no less than six times), shedding light on his poetic sensibility and musical imagination.
