No singer is able to ignore Beethoven’s Adelaide. There are thousands of recordings, and many amateurs also love this lyrical setting of Friedrich von Matthisson’s poem. Matthisson himself said of it: “Several composers have breathed life into this little lyrical fantasy with music; but none of them have, I deeply believe, so put the text into the shade with their melody as the genius Ludwig van Beethoven in Vienna.” We are publishing the Lied in a new practical single edition that follows the musical text of the Beethoven Complete Edition, with a detailed preface by the specialist on Beethoven’s Lieder Helga Lühning.
