4.0 out of 5 stars Quite clear to read, 6 May 2014

This review is from: Complete Song Cycles (Dover Song Collections) (Paperback)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars at least 7 songs work well without voice for piano or other instrument, 7 April 2007

This review is from: Complete Song Cycles (Dover Song Collections) (Paperback)
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.
