Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These Dover scores are very useful for studying music or following along to recordings.
The quality of the source material here is pretty good but in hindsight the large format of the book is a tad unwieldy and I'd have preferred a pocket score or, at least, one that didn't require quite so many page turns so quickly (it's not useable for performances for that reason, I'd say).
The back of the book has English translations that are designed to fit the songs - which is useful for helping to understand them, of course, but as poetry I think they lack a certain something.

Bought this twice now.

Works well enough for guitar, though the last cycle ,- no like, I can possibly play 1 track. As the melodies are so strong in the winter masterpiece it is very easy to know if you are playing it right. To play on guitar the bass clef is played on the same treble clef as the melody and can be played between the melody instead. Of alongside it as with a piano.

Great book bought with my more advanced pupils in mind. In my case, it's for the teenage boys who are quite advanced in their performance, but not yet knowledgeable in lieder.

Essential for Singers and Scholars: Schubert's Song Cycles 3 July 2000
By Jeffrey Perry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the Dover edition of Franz Schubert's two song cycles on the poetry of Wilhelm Mueller -- Die Schoene Muellerin and Die Winterreise -- plus the collection of songs known as Schwanengesang, which is not a true cycle but rather a group of songs written by Schubert near the end of his short life (d. 1828), packaged as cycle posthumously by his publisher. If you are interested in art song, this plus a few other volumes -- for instance Schubert's Goethe Lieder, also available from Dover -- are an essential aid to enjoyment and understanding. One down side is that this is the usual Dover repackaging of an older source, and as such lacks things such as measure numbers and Deutsch catalogue numbers that would be useful to have. For the money, however, this is an essential value. English translations of the poems are included in the back of the volume.

most of the best of schubert's lieder 8 Mar. 2007
By Marc Haefele - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This volume includes the three major Schubert song cycles. It's not as usable or legible as the old Peters edition, but it is much more available and cheaper. The music of course is pure heaven, from the world-famous "Serenade" to the grim and lovely ``Winterreise'' cycle to the "Swan songs" that end with perhaps Schubert's loveliest song of all, the "Taubenpost;" that was also the last song he wrote. You can hum them, sing them, strum them on your guitar or piano and you'll be a better human being. For low voice, with adequate English translations in the back of the book.

Franz Schubert Complete Song Cycles 18 Nov. 2009
By Hyang Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was delivered sooner than I expected in securely packed envelope. Thanks for you reliable work.
Content of this book is sublime. Printing is easy to read. English translation in the back gives me more fun in appreciating Schubert's great work. Such a blessing.
Fantastic for the price 19 Aug. 2006
By Music Maker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are looking for an amazingly inexpensive way to augment your score library, Dover is the way to do it. The lack of measure numbers in many cases is not ideal, but to me, the savings more than makes up for it. When preparing for a rehearsal situation, it is relatively painless to take five minutes and number the measures myself. An inconvenience, to be sure, but spending $40 or more for an edition with measure numbers and rehearsal letters is the greater evil, as far as I'm concerned. I highly recommend this edition to vocal students, teachers, and anyone who simply wants to listen and read along to one of the greatest song-smiths ever to live.
