Only song cycli. A completed collection of songs. A song cycle is the perfect way for a composer to announce his musical story in an intimate way. Sometimes poetically, sometimes straight forward. Music and lyrics together in complete harmony. Even contemporary composers follow where Schubert and Schumann have lead, and attempt their own song cycli.
