About this Item

New York: G. Schirmer, 1907. First Edition thus. Volumes XI-XII [in one volume]. For Low Voice. Music and Lyrics [in German and in English) for 61 songs. Quarto, 165 pp. Gray cloth with gilt vignette and lettering on cover, gilt title and designs on spine. Spine ends and corners worn, some original firmness gone, but a Very Good, handsome and bright piece with 'curb appeal'. Sixty-one songs by German composer Robert Franz (1815-1892), published by G. Schirmer in 1907. With lyrics in both English and German, this is the low voice first edition [thus](high voice was the other). Franz' talent was first recognized when, in 1843, he published a booklet of songs which earned plaudits from the likes of Schumann, Liszt, and Mendelssohn. Although his career was cut short in 1868 by a hearing disorder, his immediacy and lyric simplicity showed the skilled result of Schumann's influence. He composed just 250 songs, 61 of which are collected together here for the first time. Scarce collectible for the aficionado of music and music history. L-23. Bookseller Inventory # 000445
