Liselyn Adams's Favourite Art Song
"This song shows the best of Wagner in a pocket-sized song. The harmonies are rich, the poetry perfectly expressed. The piano version is the best - Wagner was so in love with Mathilde Wesendonck, the poet, and it really shows."
2. Robert Schumann: Mondnacht, fifth song from Liederkreise, Op. 39; poem by Joseph Eichendorff. (Text and translation and discussion by Wolf-Dieter Seiffert)
3. Charles Martin Loeffler: Sudden Light, op. 15 (Four Poems) no. 1; Text: Dante Gabriel Rossetti (Text)
