New practical edition of Two Songs op. 26 by Richard Strauss for voice and piano. It comprises Frühlingsgedränge (Voices of Spring) and O wärst du mein! (O, wert thou mine!) based on poems by Nikolaus Lenau.
Strauss composed these songs from 1891-1894. 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 here.
