“I would like to sing myself to death like a nightingale” – 1840, Schumann's most prolific “song year,” was marked by great private upheaval. He was only able to finally marry Clara in September after he had fought her father in a court case. “The Eichendorff cycle is probably my most romantic,” he informed her of his latest opus, “and there is a great deal of you in it.” The song cycle opus 39 that was first published in 1842 is today one of Schumann's most important song cycles – not least because of the famous Moon night. He revised his work for a new edition eight years later. Our Urtext edition offers both versions in their entirety.
