Product summary:

Illustrated book about German lieder

Product description:

Elisabeth Schumann (1888-1952) was a German lyric soprano who sang in opera, operetta, oratorio, and lieder. She was closely connected with Richard Strauss, Otto Klemperer, Lotte Lehmann, Bruno Walter, Wilhelm Furtwängler, and other leading musicians of the first half of the 20th century.

Towards the end of her life, she wrote this short book about German lieder entitled German Song, which was translated from German to English by D Millar Craig.

Beautifully produced, the book was printed by Nederlandsche Rotogravure Leiden in Holland and contains 72 pages, including four colour plates and 41 black and white illustrations, and is bound in colour-printed paper-covered boards.

First published in London in 1948 by Max Parrish and Co Limited. Hardback.
