12 Poems Op. 35; Set of Songs on Texts by Kerner by : Kazuko Ozawa : Robert Schumann
As with the Dichterliebe (51480549); Frauenliebe und Leben (51480547) or the song cycles with texts by Heine and Eichendorff (51480548 and 51480550); the Kerner Cycle Op. 35 was written in 1840; Schumann's “Liederjahr”. Yet it has a special place: it was composed in the time immediately following Schumann's marriage to Clara Wieck. Schumann set a series of poems to music in November; during a “quiet week; which went by with composing and much loving and kissing”; and the cycle was complete by the turn of the year. It contains a great deal of intimate musical innuendos. The first edition of 1841 was soon followed by a second issue; many of the songs were published individually and the “Wanderlied” soon became a core piece in the repertoire. With Henle's edition the songs in Schumann's cycle are once again being published together in a single volume.
