Schubert's song cycle on poems by Wilhelm Müller, Die schöne Müllerin (The Lovely Maid of the Mill), is one of his most important works and the 20 songs of this masterpiece move from cheerful optimism to despondency and tragedy. The Times of London says, "For Goerne and Eschenbach, Die schöne Müllerin is …an emotional journey recollected not in tranquility, but in a fierce, unquenchable anger from beyond the grave."
