Folio. 14 1/4 x 10 3/4 inches. 189,  pp. Musical notations throughout; pencil notations on title page and last page, occasional pencil notations in the text but are unobtrusive. Color pictorial wrappers with a self-portrait of Schoenberg on the front cover; shelf wear, binding square and tight. Good. Gurre-Lieder is a large cantata for five vocal soloists, narrator, chorus and large orchestra, composed by Arnold Schoenberg, on poems by the Danish novelist Jens Peter Jacobsen. The title means "songs of Gurre", a reference to Gurre Castle in Denmark, scene of the medieval love-tragedy revolving around the Danish national legend of the love of the Danish King, Valdemar Atterdag (Valdemar IV, 1320-1375) for his mistress, Tove, the story told in Jacobsen's poem. The work was first premiered in Vienna on February 23, 1913. The front cover of this score is illustrated with a self-portrait of Arnold Schoenberg. This publication is undated. However, the title page references the Universal-Edition A. G., Vienna and Leipzig, 1920, and Copyright renewal by Arnold Schoenberg, 1948. Since the publisher, Belmont Music Publishers' address has a zip code, we must assume publication after the mid-1960s.
