Description

New practical edition of “Schlichte Weisen” op. 21 by Richard Strauss from “Five Poems” by Felix Dahn (1834-1912).
Strauss composed these songs in 1889/90. 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.


The songs here are set in their original keys.


Based on the text of “Richard Strauss Works” – Critical Edition (RSW), with English translations by John Bernhoff.
