Composed by: Beethoven, Ludwig van

Although Beethoven ranks as one of the most celebrated Western classical composers of all time, some of his works remain surprisingly obscure.His folksong arrangements certainly garner less attention than his original songs, but there are nonetheless several gems among the collections.Beethoven’s English was non‐existent; however, he was adamant that his English publisher explain the meaning behind the texts, refusing to compose without understanding the context.The recordings on this six-disc set, dating from 1972, 1979 and 2007, feature a fine assemblage of singers and ensembles.
