Any “best of” musical list can elicit strong discourse and controversy—which is not necessarily a bad thing. We all feel strongly about the merits of a work and how it speaks to us on a personal level and will all have different opinions as to what piece best exemplifies a genre. When it comes to art song, even agreeing on a definition can be contentious. Most will concede that it is a union of poetry and music—beyond that, it depends on the context. This list draws from the German Lied, French mélodie, and English language classical art-song tradition since the Romantic era. No doubt dozens of worthy examples could be listed from each selected composer, but here some exemplary examples of craftsmanship and beauty for you to explore.
