Fair Maid of the Mill, The (High) by Bruce Daniel

Score

Song cycle for high voice and piano.
Die Schöne Müllerin D.795
Original German text by Wilhelm Müller.
It is a story that takes its audience on a journey that is dramatic as well as musical. The songs come fully alive only as the story reveals itself to the audience in real time, as the composer intended. It is hoped that this edition may offer English-speaking singers and audiences the immediate experience that German-speakers take for granted. The edition is a translation not of poems but of song lyrics.
There have been many such attempts in the past but I have yet to see one which comes anywhere near a credible or convincing realisation of Müller’s poetry as it appears in the context of Schubert’s music. (David Miller, pianist)
