    This is an absolutely beautiful song cycle. Some people like the original version better, but I adore the revised version, where Hindemith made the work more melodic and more thematic. The work is not hard technically for the singer, but the singer has to be capable of singing independently from...

    the piano. Although many of the pieces start and end in C major or A minor, they usually visit nearly every key in between, sometime for just part of a measure so that a tonal center never is truly established. The Rilke poetry is amazing. Very powerful and touching.
