The Struwwelpeter (Slovenly Peter) book of poems was a 19th-century German collection intended to scare children out of bad habits. The macabre nature of these verses inspired Lowell Liebermann to set three of the poems for Soprano, Viola, and Piano, resulting in the Struwwelpeterlieder (Slovenly Peter Songs). The publication includes the authentic 19th-century cover illustration, and translations of the poems. For advanced musicians.
