To help give this important composer the recognition she deserves, Edition Peters, in collaboration with the Schumann-Haus Leipzig, is now, on the occasion of her 200th birthday, publishing this Anniversary Songbook. The 14 songs, representing the pinnacle of Clara's art, were composed mainly in the period after her marriage in Leipzig to Robert Schumann - who was her greatest champion.
This volume includes:
• new practical editions of 14 of Clara Schumann's greatest songs
• introductions to each song, written by Frances Falling, Schumann-Haus Leipzig
• new English translations of the song lyrics
• a CD containing recordings of the piano accompaniments
Complementing the printed volume, interactive features and content will be available on the Tido Music iPad and desktop website. Designed to encourage singers to explore, learn and practise new repertoire, scores are synced with professional piano accompaniment recordings and innovative practice tools. -the publisher
