Description: No mean poet himself, Cornelius set his own compositions to music in the majority of his lieder, many of which were composed while he was living in Weimar as part of Liszt's circle. But, even though he later attended Wagner in Munich, Cornelius' songs are his own, and have no trace of either of his major, overshadowing associates. Texts and translations available on-line. Christina Landshamer (soprano), Markus Schäfer (tenor), Mathias Hausmann (baritone), Matthias Veit (piano).
