Lieder & Lovesongs

During a time when classical instrumental music underwent a remarkable metamorphosis (from Brahms to Stravinsky and beyond), the popular love song experienced a parallel evolution, from the romantic lieder of 19th century Europe to the "American Standard" of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s.
