"Faust", "Wilhelm Meister", "Egmont", even "Erlkönig" - again and again Beethoven chose texts by Goethe for his song compositions. Now, for the first time, all of Beethoven's songs with texts by the great Weimar writer are available in one volume. Alongside the famous setting of "Wonne der Wehmut" and Mephisto's satiric Flea Song, Op. 75, No. 3, there are also others to be discovered, such as four different versions of Mignon's Song "Nur wer die Sehnsucht kennt".
All songs are presented in the original keys for high voice.
