BALLADE von GÖTHE, in Musik gesetzt... 15 pages, oblong 4to (23.2 x 32.2cm). First edition of perhaps the composer's most famous song, with Schubert's abbreviated autograph signature ("FrSch"), paraph, and the number 149 to verso of final leaf, constituting his control mark. Engraved throughout, ownership inscriptions and ownership stamp to title, leading edge of title and lower right-hand corner of second leaf strengthened, a few tiny tears to margins, spine strengthened, some light spotting and browning.
A very good, wide-margined copy overall, with strong impression. The first edition of Erlkönig is one of the rarest of all Schubert publications. Schubert composed his Lied, "Der Erlkönig", for solo voice and piano in 1815, setting text from the Goethe poem.
Schubert revised the song three times before publishing his fourth version in 1821 as his Opus 1; it was cataloged by Otto Erich Deutsch as D. 328 in his 1951 catalog of Schubert's works.
Perhaps Schubert's most famous'Lied', receiving acclaim both during and after his lifetime.... Schubert's setting captures both the psychological nuances and pictorial lyricism of Goethe's poem.
