    Songs (3) from Das Knaben Wunderhorn [1111-1]

    Late-Romantic. Arrangements of three songs from "Des Knaben Wunderhorn" ("The Youth's Magic Horn"). The original set is a group of anonymous Greek folk tunes, however Mahler composed his own group of 12 additional songs under the title "Humoresken", which these three songs are from. Included are: Rheinlegenchen (Little Rhine Legend, 1893); Wer hat dies Liedel erdacht? (Who thought up this song?, 1892); Lob des hohen Verstandes (Praise of Lofty Intellect, 1896). Mahler meant for the collection to be for voice and orchestra, however he composed voice and piano editions first. Clarinet in Bb. Includes score & parts for all three songs. -AP
