I have a couple of CDs of Schubert and Schumann lieder- songs of poems by, I think, Heinrich Heine. They're great, full of mournful, romantic atmosphere.

Anyone suggest any more Lieder stuff which is in this vein?

Those Germans, they weren't half romantic in the 19th Century.

You've started at the top with Schubert and Schumann - I don't think there are lieder composers to touch those two, Schubert especially.

For my money, the two greatest sets of lieder are Schubert's Winterreise and Die schöne Müllerin (both settings of texts by Wilhelm Müller). Fantastic recording of the latter by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau with the peerless accompanist Gerald Moore.

Thanks loads Andy. I got into this stuff by seeing a program about it on the South Bank Show, and it just opened up a new world. At it's best this stuff is so fragile, just.... tremulous.

Heard some stuff by Hans Werner Henze too, very good but more 20th Century- more fractured.

There are some good Heine settings by Hugo Wolff, who operated later in the 19th century.

Henze's quite hard to get into I reckon. They're in no way alike, but if you get Ornette Coleman I reckon there's a chance you can understand Henze. And if you like Henze, you might try Luciano Berio's songs (there are several recordings featuring Berio accompanying his I-think-former wife, Cathy Berberian).
