Adelaide op. 46 (Original Key for high Voice)
Editor: Helga Lühning
No singer is able to ignore Beethoven’s Adelaide. There are thousands of recordings, and many amateurs also love this lyrical setting of Friedrich von Matthisson’s poem. Matthisson himself said of it: “Several composers have breathed life into this little lyrical fantasy with music; but none of them have, I deeply believe, so put the text into the shade with their melody as the genius Ludwig van Beethoven in Vienna.” We are publishing the Lied in a new practical single edition that follows the musical text of the Beethoven Complete Edition, with a detailed preface by the specialist on Beethoven’s Lieder Helga Lühning.
