Winterreise is perhaps the greatest song cycle ever written. Franz Schubert set to music the evocative poetry of his contemporary, German lyricist, Wilhelm Muller. It is a heart-rending portrayal of a winter journey through longing and resignation. This unique multimedia volume brings together the achievements of Schubert and Muller with new interpretations by present day musicians, scholars, and a photographer. The volume includes: the complete German text of Wilhelm Muller's twenty-four poems; a new English translation of the poems by Louise McClelland Urban; a foreword by Pulitzer Prize - winning American composer, John Harbison; an introductory essay by renowned Schubert scholar, Susan Youens; ninety-two black and white photographs of a winter's journey by Katrin Talbot; and a compact-disc recording of the ""Winterreise"" song cycle performed by baritone Paul Rowe and pianist, Martha Fischer.
