The Liederkreis op. 39, first published in 1842, remains one of Schumann’s most important song cycles to this day, and not only because of the famous “Mondnacht”. Eight years later, Schumann revised his work for a new edition, also replacing the opening piece in the first edition (“Der frohe Wandersmann”) with the song “In der Fremde”. The Henle Urtext edition offers both versions in their entirety, thereby providing a wonderful opportunity to study Schumann’s later work on the music. The two editions for medium and low voice complement the original version for high voice (HN 550) – and as always with Schumann, in well-planned transpositions by the experienced song accompanist Gerold Huber.
