Description
Another collection in the series of arrangements of lieder of the German Romantik for voice and string quartet by Reimann (6 Songs Op. 107 by Robert Schumann, ED 8329 and Franz Schubert's Mignon, ED 8466, have already been published). The nearly aphoristic Ophelia-songs keep closely to Brahms' original - a different compositional approach to the one in the Mendelssohn adaptation below, where songs and fragments are interspersed with longer, deliberately contemporary intermezzi and the whole forms an extended cycle.
