About this Item

BEETHOVEN, Ludwig van. Lied aus der Ferne, mit Begleitung des Piano Forte [WoO 137]. Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel, [1810]. Oblong quarto, modern full brown morocco. $3500.First edition of Beethoven s setting of Reissig s poem arranged for piano and voice. Fully engraved.Beethoven often turned to poetry for inspiration, most notably Goethe, whom he admired above all writers then living; but he found that he could more freely compose musical settings for the works of lesser poets, among them Christian Ludwig Reissig (1783-1847). The five songs composed to Reissig s words later "gave rise to much annoyance" when the poet claimed ownership of Beethoven s compositions (Thayer, 476). Engraved title page and music text. Kinsky-Halm, 604. A few small and inoffensive stains, still a fine copy. Bookseller Inventory # 32045
