In his later years Fortner wrote a number of compositions for specific, usually private, occasions, most to texts by major German poets. These songs from his estate are here published as a collection for the first time. The dedications are very personal and intimate, in keeping with the private realm of the compositions. The transparent, delicate piano writing, reminiscent of some of Webern's setting, is indicative of Fortner's commanding mature style • economical yet relaxed and mellow. Reiselied (Hofmannsthal) • Andenken (Eichendorff) • Ballade des

äusseren Lebens (Hofmannsthal) • Unterwelt (Heine) • In my craft or sullen art (Thomas) • Bitte (Lenau) • Eine kleine Bitte (Lenau) • Neujahrsgruss (Mörike) • Wünschelrute (Eichendorff).
