John Reed - The Schubert Song Companion

In his brief working life Schubert created a vast new literature of song, establishing the Romantic Lied as an independent art form of intimate subtlety and resource and taking it, in his last years, to a peak of expressiveness which has never been surpassed.
This reference book provides for the first time an encyclopaedic guide not just to the well-known songs but to every song by Schubert for solo voice and piano, including different versions, unfinished songs and variants - and there are well over 600 0f them.

With prose translations by Norma Deane and Celia Larner and a foreword by Dame Janet Baker.
