New practical edition of the Acht Gedichte op. 10 by Richard Strauss from Letzte Blätter by Austrian poet Hermann von Gilm (1812-1864).
Strauss composed these songs in 1885 when he was 21 years old. He often accompanied his wife, the soprano Pauline Strauss-de Ahna, on the piano and worked with her on interpretations of his piano songs. The resulting entries of the composer (e.g. performance markings) are reproduced in this edition. Included are three of the best-known of his songs, Zueignung No. 1 (Devotion), Nichts No. 2 (Nought) and Die Nacht No. 3 (Night).
