Pressestimmen"It took courage beyond reckoning for Schubert to set Wilhelm Muller's poetry to music, because he saw in it his own possible fate, one of unimaginable bleakness. A great work assumes even greater power when one realizes what it must have meant to its creator." - Susan Youens, from the introductory essay
