"I would like to sing like a nightingale" ... The year 1840, Schumann's most creative Year of the Lied, is marked by profound private upheavals. It is only after a lawsuit against Clara's father that he can finally marry her, in the month of September. "The Eichendorff cycle is probably the most romantic of all," he tells Clara about his latest album, "and there's a lot of you in it." The Liederkreis op. 39 published for the first time in 1842 is one of the main cycles of Schumann's Lieder, and not only because of the famous "Mondnacht". Eight years later, Schumann revised his work for a new edition. This Urtext Edition offers both full versions.
