[+] Peake, Luise Eitel. "The Antecedents of Beethoven's Liederkreis." Music and Letters 63 (July/October 1982): 242-60.

In his song cycle An die entfernte Geliebte, Beethoven shows awareness of the whole tradition of compositions written for "song circles" and writes to meet the conventional expectations of hidden symbolism. Specifically, the cycle contains reworked material from Ries's "An die Erwählte" from his Sechs Lieder von Goethe.

Works: Beethoven: An die entfernte Geliebte.

Index Classifications: 1800s
